Pureed Carrot Baby Food
Homemade carrot puree for baby is an easy and low cost alternative to store-bought baby food. Spice it up with cinnamon, basil, or garlic to start introducing new flavors to your little one.
- 1 baby carrots (bag)
- ½ cup water
*Skip if using baby carrots*
Wash carrots. Cut off stems and chop into 2-3 inch pieces.
Bring water to boil on stove.
Add carrots and boil for 10-15 minutes (until tender). If they're easily pierced by a fork or knife, they're done.
Drain water, and rinse with cold water or place in water bath to cool carrots off. This stops the cooking process internally.
Once they've cooled, place in blender or food processor with water. Blend until desired consistency. If needed, add additional water by the spoonful.
Serve fresh, and store remaining in the refrigerator (3 days) or frozen (3 months).
