Make Your Own Baby Food - Sweet Potatoes

I'm back with another baby food recipe.

Today I'm sharing a staple veggie that my babies have both loved, sweet potatoes.

Sweet potatoes are cheap very affordable and they are packed with vitamin A & C and tons of potassium as well!

They are so easy to make!

Just wash and scrub them and place on a pan (I like to put tin foil under so there's no clean up)

Poke them all over a bunch of times with a knife or fork and bake at 425 degrees for 45-60 minutes.

Allow them to cool for a bit then either take a spoon and scoop the flesh out of the skin 

or peel the skin off - whichever you prefer.

Place into a food processor or blender and add a little water (or breastmilk)

Blend until smooth

I bought the sweet potatoes at $0.88/lb and made 9 and 1/4 jars. For me it worked out to $0.14/jar! So much cheaper than store bought and fresher too!

Store in the fridge for about 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months!
