    Default Anyone make homemade babyfood??

    Im into making homemade purees for my DS. my questioon is...... How do you keep fruit purees?? i have been cutting up a piece of fruit and pureeing it evertime i give him fruit and its a pain in the butt to get the pureeer out every time, but when i puree a bunch, of peaches for example, adn store them in the fridge the turn brown within a day or so. anyone have any ideas?? i have also tried buying him canned fruit and it keeps longer in the fridge, but when fresh fruit is in season i would rather give that. can i freeze the fresh peaches or pears after pureed ??

    Yes, you can definitely freeze the purees. I put them in ice cube trays, freeze them and then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag.

    You could also just consider mashing the fruit with a fork each time, instead of getting out the blender or food processor. A ripe peach is pretty soft and IME it doesn't need to be the consistency of pudding for most kids that age.

    I make all Nolan's food homemade, except we don't make purees anymore. When I did at first, I just froze all the extra and then pulled it out of the freezer the night before he was going to eat it.

    You can basically freeze anything. Fruits, veggies, garbanzo beans....

    We just give our son (born 14 Jan 08) french fry sized pieces of soft foods and let him work on them. He's pretty effective with his gums! Some things I cut up to be bite-sized, but mostly I let him bite pieces off.

    But, the cubes of frozen puree do rock, and you can put a still-frozen cube in a mesh feeder for some teething-feeding fun.

    use the freezer and ice cube trays and take them out either the night before or even just before and put it in a separate zip lock back and run it under warm water to defrost faster!

    Muffin tins work good for freezing purees too and have a variety of sizes.
