I caught sweet potatoes on sale last week and decided to get some to make for Farrah. I have to tell you this has been the easiest of any baby food I have made so far. Here's what I did.
What do you need?
- An oven
- A blender/food processor. I use a Baby Bullet.
- Storage containers
Ingredients: Sweet Potatoes and Water
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Wash the sweet potatoes and prick several times with a fork.
Step 3: Bake sweet potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes.
Step 4: Remove the potatoes from the oven and cut in half. Scoop out with a spoon.
Step 5: Place the sweet potatoes and some water in your blender and blend until you reach the desired consistency. I started with only a little water because all of the baby food I have made so far has needed little to no water. Sweet potatoes are a different story. I used about 2 cups of water. I was batch cooking baby food that day and used the water left from cooking apples.
Step 6: Pour your sweet potato puree in storage containers.
