Make It: Homemade Baby Food

[reposted from Stephanie's personal blog, Life With Ian]

Today I rushed home with Ian and got right down to the business of making peas. It was just about as easy as popping open a jar of Gerber. Here's how I did it:

1. Buy fresh or frozen peas.

2. Steam the little suckers for about 10 minutes on a low boil.

3. Puree with a cup or so of distilled water. You can also use the pea water from the pan; it's loaded with vitamins!

4. Work the puree through a sieve, if you please. This is optional and, honestly, not worth the time.

5. Feed fresh to baby.

6. Then freeze the rest. This bag made enough for two trays full - that's about 18 jars of the factory stuff, and it took less than 20 minutes. Easy peasy!

i remember those days. seems just like yesterday but then again who are those crazy school aged kids i kissed got onto the bus this morning??

side note, i love the color of veggies at their healthiest. the green pea color, the orange of a sweet potato, or the deep green of steamed broccoli. i could so be a vegetarian if it wasn't for my need for a good burger every few weeks.
