Starting solid foods.... suggestions?

I started with carrots, I would but one jar of actual baby food and if it went well I would buy the actual food and throw it in a blender. Making his food allowed me to introduce him to a whole palette of fruits and veggies that don't come in jars. He's 4 now and the only child I have come across that consistently will eat almost anything you put in front of him.

We're doing applesauce (buy the unsweetened stuff, you don't have to buy the fancy over-priced 'baby-food' applesauce), squash, and sweet potatoes so far. Sweet potatoes and squash are nice, since you can either buy them or make them really easily (roast until soft, then scoop out the flesh and run it through a food processor. Freeze in ice cube trays for easy single servings).
Bananas are good, too, prepared the same way Stephanie does avocado above.

I tried each different food three days in row So then you can work out what foods you baby loves and doesn't love so much. Changed to another one then started mixing them together. I started adding other things like ricotta yogurt corn peas and then meat :)
