Making Baby Food. Apricots and Blueberries.

I went to the Farmer’s Market a few days ago and picked up some yummy produce to make Fletcher some more baby food in my Beaba Babycook. This session involved making apricots and blueberries.  Both of these had to be thickened with rice cereal.  There is a step by step of the apricots.  I boiled the blueberries for a few minutes until soft, and pureed them.  I drained most of the water, but added some cereal to thicken it.

  • Looks good! How long does homemade babyfood last in the freezer?
    .-= Lauren´s last blog ..Kids in Church =-.

  • @Lauren I would think a few months. If there are ice crystals on it that is still fine, I just wouldn’t use it with freezer burn on it.

  • yeah it lasts a couple months, i think. you can pop them out of the ice cube try and put them in plastic freezer bags to prevent freezer burn.

  • I love my babycook. Baby food lasts 3 days in the fridge and 3 months in the freezer. I use ice cube trays overnight then into freezer bags with the date and what it is written on the top. I also reuse plastic baby food containers in the freezer. These are easier to take out with us than the ice cubes. I usually mix all the fruit/ veggies with water then freeze and add in cereal when I serve it. Cereal does help thicken watery fruit. I am so glad to see someone else blog about their babycook. The only downside to this machine is that it takes a long time to make a large batch of baby food. That’s when I opt for the blender!

    I love the Beaba babycook! I also learned that apricots are very runny, and very tart. Blueberries is a good idea to sweeten them a little. I wish I would have thought to add some cereal to thicken it!
