Another very basic puree, but still, it’s delicious and good for your baby!
It’s a good idea to have some basic puree in your freezer, to mix some cubes with other basic purees… squash-apple, squash-fish, squash-peas…
Big boy was enjoying squash-pineapple at lunch time today.
Butternut squashes are very rich in vitamin A and fibers. It’s awesome because October is coming fast and it will be the big squash/pumpkin season, I’m sooooooo happy!!!! I’m such a fan!
7-8 servings (of 1/3 cup)
* 1 medium butternut squash
* Peel the squash and cut into small chucks.
* Steam cook until they are tender. It took me around 8-10 minutes. (I prefer steam cooking over regular boiling water)
* Put it in the food processor. Mix.
* You can add a small amount of fresh water to get a nice smooth puree.
* An effective method of preservation is freezing. The ice cube trays are very useful, inexpensive and reusable as many times as we wish. Simply place the puree in the trays to freeze it and once it is frozen, removed from the mold and put the cubes in a freezer container. Don’t forget to write the date on it. you can keep it for at least 3 months.
