I'm Anna Mooney. This is no longer just a food blog. I am a home cook, a mother, a blogger, and a crafter. I wear many hats. And socks.
I live in Murfreesboro, TN and study science.
HOMEMADE BABY FOOD:
Ginger Apple Squash.
It doesn’t take nearly as much effort as you might think. I just prepared a small batch here, but you can make as much as you want for freezing. Typically, we will prepare the vegetables by themselves without any added flavors or other vegetables. This way, we can try different spices and herbs, and we don’t waste any hard work in the event that Baby Willa doesn’t like it.
Preparing almost all vegetables for 4-8 month old infants involves: peeling, steaming, and mashing. Squash is a little different because it has so many seeds so in addition to removing as many as we could we also pushed the squash through a strainer after we mashed it.
I added about 1/2 tsp of ginger and 2 or 3 T of Simply Apple to the squash puree. It doesn’t take much juice because squash has so much water already.
Willa enjoyed it.
