Yeah! I am getting one out on time! Cheer for me! I have been trying to get this post done for two weeks and something always seemed to come up. Well, I finally got it done this week, so here goes.
This weeks post is on making your own purees. Now, I know you are wondering why would I do that? Well, I am not a hug veggie lover, and neither is my family. So a few years ago I heard about a couple of cookbooks that added purees to everyday recipes to get kids to eat their veggies and love it. Turns out that hubby and I loved it too. The cookbooks are
Deceptively Delicious, and The Sneaky Chef. I have both and highly recommend them. So where do you start? Start with various veggies. This time I used butternut squash, acorn squash and sweet potatoes. I have also done carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli.
Scoop out the flesh from the squash and peel the skin off the sweet potatoes. Put the flesh in a food processor and puree on high until smooth.
here for one of our favorite puree recipes. I also used this same method to make baby food for Landon when he was little. I was surprised at how long it lasted. I would make purees one day a month and would have plenty for him to eat. It worked great for us and was so much cheaper than buying baby food.
