Homemade Organic Baby Food

After resisting baby food for the last month I finally gave in.
I am not ready for my princess to grow up but she is ready for some grub!
She is reaching and trying to grab all the food on our plates and forks 
(she takes after her mama + daddy, we LOVE food!!) 
I went to look for our Baby Breeza (baby food processor I used to make all of Eli's food)  today and can't find it. I almost ordered a new one off Amazon but wasn't in the mood to spend $59 so I just decided to use what we already own!!! 

Here is how I make pureed organic carrots:
I buy the pre-cut and peeled organic carrots from Trader Joe's.
First, I wash the with natural Fruit & Veggie Wash. 
This particular one I get at the Farmer's Market and is locally made in Frisco, Texas! 
Then, I boil filtered water in a medium saucepan, once boiling I reduce heat and 
add the steamer part to the sauce pan and dump in the carrots! 
Cover and let steam until tender (10-15 minutes). 

Next, I drain and wash the carrots in cold water to stop the cooking process. 
Lastly, I dump the carrots and cold water (about a 1/4 a cup) into the blender and puree.
Pop it  into a mason jar and voila, you're done! 
I put 1 in the fridge to cool and 1 on the icebox to freeze.
Baby food in the fridge is good for 3 days and in the icebox is good for 3 months.

I'm excited to feed my princess for the first time over this Memorial Day Weekend! 
Such a bittersweet time!
