I am a new mom planning on making some of my baby foods like my sister did. She told me a really quick and easy way to fix and freeze the homemade baby food that I thought I would pass along. After making up your bachs of homemade baby food, use ice trays to freeze small individual portions. After they freeze solid pop them out and use small freezer bags and place several different flavors ineach baggy. Example- one bag may have a cubes of sweet potatos, peas and peaches. Another may have cubes of bananas, carrots and broccoli. You can mix and match all you want and when dinner time comes around you just pull out one baggy from your freezer with individual portions ready to go.
Another hint- if you can find them use the small freezer bags you can write on to make note what flavors you have in which bags.
Oh, and remember it is much better to steam the foods on the stove, you lose alot of vitamins when you microwave or boil them.
Let me know what you think or if YOU have any recipes or suggestions please post them here.
