Gear

Might as well be prepared and organized, right? I believe making your own baby food doesn’t actually take a lot of time if you take how much you are making into consideration and trips to the grocery store. However, we might as well be efficient. Below is a list of “gear” in my kitchen that helped me along the way. You can purchase this gear by visiting the Carrots Are Orange Amazon Store. I appreciate the support.

Preparing:

  • Steamer and Pureer - You’ll need a steamer and a puréer. You can steam with a pot and water also. Keep that in mind if you want to minimize the kitchen gadgets, space and budget. I have the all in one steamer and pureer, which I hold near and dear to my heart, the Beaba Babycook.
  • Food Mill – There are some recipes that suggest using a food mill. I have one and I love it. It works well with purees that include veggies with skin (e.g peas and chickpeas) and that may be stringy (e.g. Leeks).
  • Typical Kitchen Gear – I believe you should have everything else you need already in your kitchen including cutting board, knives for chopping and slicing, peeler, sautee pan, small pot, wooden spoon and mixing bowl.

Storing and Freezing:

  • Babycubes – 2 ounce portions that are microwave and dishwasher safe. Perfect for storing in fridge and freezing.
  • Kinderville Bites – Made from Silicone, these containers are BPA, phthalate and lead free. I use the 10 ounce storage containers. They worked well because you can store and freeze larger portions and the containers are microwavable and dishwasher safe.
  • Pyrex Tupperware
  • Freezer Bags
  • Tovolo Ice Cube Trays – These ice cube trays are ideal because they are made of silicone, which makes them flexible and the cubes easy to pop out. I let the cubes freeze and pop them out into a freezer bag for longer term storage.

Please contact me for reviews and suggestions. I have tried many products and use all those products mentioned in this step.
