Baby Food Sweet Potato Mash Recipe

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Antonio our precious grandson (see photo below),  absolutely loves sweet potatoes, just like his own daddy did when he was a baby. With the prices of baby food today, you can make your own in such little time with little money and much healthier knowing what's in it. Freeze leftovers, or place in jars for 2 or 3 days at the most. Remember do not use your spoon into the jar while feeding the baby, always pour into a dish. 
The saliva can cause bacteria to the food. 
This sweet potato mash is for 4-6 month old babies.

Baby Food Sweet Potato Mash Recipe 

Sweet potatoes as many as you want to make these can be baked piercing with holes then removing the skins after baking for 45 minutes. You can also cube and boil them or steam them with skins off.
All methods work fine.

After they are cooked to your desired method, place in a food processor and add water a little at a time, ( I use bottled water or some of the boiled water if you have cooked on the stove top ) until you reach the consistency you like pulsed until smooth.

Place in little jars is recommended for refrigerator use.

Place in small plastic zip lock freezer bags and freeze any leftovers.

You can keep in the refrigerator 2 to 3 days. Freeze the rest for future use up to 3 months.
