Sweet Potatoes – Baby food

Make your own baby food people!  It’s easy and you’ll be shocked at how much water is in the stuff.  No point in paying for water and little jars to throw away!  Plus have you ever eaten the stuff in the jar.  Gack!  It’s icky…This is not:

Sweet Potatoes – Baby food
1 medium sweet potato
Peel the potato with your veggie peeler and then cut into chunks.  Place all of the chunks in a small sauce pan and cover with water.  Boil until potatoes are super tender, adding more water if needed.  When taters are tender, put everything in your blender (don’t drain the water).  Add any where between 1/2 c. to 1 c. water, continue blending and adding water until “baby food” consistency is reached (be sure to vent the blender so the steam can escape and be careful!). 
 Place prepared food into ice cube tray.  Freeze until frozen and then remove and put in a ziplock bag, keep in  freezer until you are ready to use them.  Now you will have little servings when you are ready for them.  I take one or two out, microwave for a bit and presto – meal in seconds.  If I microwave it too long, I add some cold applesauce from the fridge and it cools it to just the right temperature!
