Adventures in Baby Food Making - Week 4: Mangoes
We finished our 4 days with Pears, which we still aren't too sure about and started Mangoes as our "Week 4" food.
After an initial gag, we couldn't get enough! Noah truly liked Mangoes, but I still think that Butternut Squash is, by far, his favorite.
Here is how its done:
I selected two Organic Mangoes from Whole Foods. Two mangoes made 1 full tray of ice cube squares of 2 tbsp each.
I slashed the skin and peeled back the skin.
Then, I pulled out the fruit from the skin and away from the pit.
This was much more difficult that I thought it was going to be.
I pureed the mangoes in our Cuisinart 11 cup food processor for 2 minutes until it was really smooth. Then, I placed 2 tbsp. of fruit into each ice cube compartment.
Finally, I bagged the fruit in a freezer bag and labeled the bag. The frozen cubes are good for up to 10 months.
And here was what we thought about it:
Not sure at first.....
But then we loved it and can't get enough!
Haven't decided about next week - Depends on what we can find organic!
