How To Make Peach Baby Food Puree
When my son was born I always said I wanted to make his baby food. Well fast forward to when he was six months old and ready for solid foods… long story short no baby food was made. I was way to uptight as a first time mom and really had no clue what I was doing, so I left the baby food making to the pros. Fast forward again to three years later and baby two has arrived and is ready for solids. I told myself this time I will make the food and surprisingly I managed to accomplish it and you can too! Turns out it is super easy and much cheaper than buying baby food in jars or pouches. It only took me about an hour and a half to make four different purees and I already had everything I needed.
The items I used where my ninja blender, a steaming basket, and an ice cube tray. Two peaches only made about a cup. I would suggest using at least 4 peaches if you want to fill the ice tray.
Your first step was to wash and peel the peaches. Then cut them in half and remove the seed. After the seed is removed, cut the peaches into small chunks and toss them into your steaming basket. Steam until peaches are soft or for about 2-3 minutes depending on the firmness of your peaches.
After your peaches have been steamed, place them into your blender or food processor and blend. Add small amounts of water as needed until you have reached the texture you desire.
After you have reached your desired texture allow peaches to cool. Once they have cooled you can add them into your ice tray.
Once peaches are in the ice tray make sure they are completely cooled before putting them in your freezer. after they have frozen you can remove them from the ice tray and put them into ziplock bags or a plastic container. They will last up to 4 month in the freezer or 3 days in the fridge.
