Homemade Baby Food Step-By-Step (Carrots)

It’s been about five months or so since I first started making baby food. There have been a couple of hiccups along the way but all in all, making homemade baby food is easy and inexpensive. Last night I went and bought some groceries, making sure that I bought plenty of foods that could refill the baby food section of our freezer.

I ended up making carrots, applesauce, sweet potatoes and a combination of apples, blueberries, and chicken. I managed to fill every empty container that I had so it will probably be about three weeks to a month before I need to make baby food again.

Baby carrots are by far the easiest to use when making carrot baby food. There is no peeling and no chopping involved, they can go directly into the steamer the way that they come. The only thing I recommend doing is giving the carrots a good rinse before you cook them.

Get your carrots into the steamer and cook them until fork tender.

Once you can easily press a fork through the carrots it’s time to remove them from heat and get them into your blender. Add enough water to the blender that it submerges 3/4 of the carrots, then blend. All that’s left is to fill your containers and freeze.
