Baby Food

I've been slowly trying new food with Greer that I make at home.
This is a combination of several things but she seems to like it and it get's some greens in her, which is always a challenge.
I've learned from the Sprout Baby Food she likes so much, that roasting as opposed to steaming has lots more flavor.

Ingredients:
2 carrots, washed and chopped to 2" chunks
2 large sweet potatoes, sliced a quarter inch thick leaving the skins on
2 apples, halved, cores and stems removed
1 large handful of spinach
Olive oil
2 T. unsalted butter
1 t. cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 400ยบ
Arrange everything on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil until all veggies are coated.
Bake for 40 minutes, turning the veggies once.
Meanwhile melt the butter in a skillet and wilt the spinach down.
Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes. Scoop out the inside of the apples.
Combine everything in a food processor with the cinnamon. Add in some apple juice or water to get to the consistency your baby will eat.

I put all the food into ice cube trays to freeze. Then pop them out into tupperware for storage. I'm told fresh baby food keeps for a month in the freezer.

And just to remind you of the sweetness who is eating this. Here she is. All 9 months of her. Time is flying SO fast!
