When you see how fast this is you’ll never buy watered down sweet potatoes in a jar again. OK, that may be a lie, I still buy them now and then but still, this be super quick and WAY cheaper. Let’s get with the baby food making….
Wash. Yes, EVEN if it’s organic.
Pierce. We want NO microwave potato explosions!
Microwave it for 3 minutes then assess doneness. You are looking for a soft to the touch feel. After 3 minutes, cook in 1 minute increments until done. The one pictured took 5 minutes total.
Cut and cool. It’s not only too hot for baby, but for you! Just half it and let it sit for a bit.
The nice thing about sweet potatoes, they are naturally soft when cooked all the way. Simply scoop out.
Feel free to run it through a processor or simply smash with a fork. Add water/formula/breastmilk to get a consistency right for your baby.
I love this age. They have no idea what’s coming so there are no complaints.
Am I the only Mom who cringes when offering new food? I’m always worried it will be rejected.
Little Bean made a few funny faces at first, but by the 3rd bite he was sold!
Store the leftovers in saved baby food jars or any airtight container.
Here’s little guy after his complete meal of sweet potatoes plus a little Brown Rice Cereal mixed with formula.
