Here’s another easy way to give your child a wonderful,nutritious meal. I found these organic carrots at a local farmer’s market and couldn’t wait to make my daughter a puree with these. Even when they are pureed they just look so much better than the packaged stuff! They have a wonderful,creamy texture and a vibrant,natural, orange color!
Bunch of Carrots
Peel carrots and slice into chunks. Fill a pot with water until it just reaches the bottom of your steamer. Cook carrots until tender. Place carrots into blender, food mill or food processor. Puree until desired consistency is reached, using breast milk,water or formula to thin it out.
IMPORTANT Do not use the reserved water from steaming to thin carrots out! Nitrates from the carrots can leach into the water. Lots of people are afraid to make homemade carrots because of this reason but if you don’t use the water, you’re fine!
