DH and I have used the Magic Bullet for a while to make smoothies, dips, etc., and we were very excited to start using it to make our own baby food. This past weekend we took a trip out to a local organic farm and stocked up on veggies before the winter and set up shop in our kitchen. Making baby food- at least in this early stage- is relatively easy. Cook the food (I used recipes from www.wholesomebabyfood.com), puree it, and plop it into individual serving sizes.
The Magic Bullet surprisingly required a lot of time and energy. It may be because we filled the cup almost to the top, but it wasn't mixing well. The food by the blade pureed well, but the bottom of the cup didn't move down. I had to keep taking it off, shaking, banging, and stirring.
It was a long night, but in the end, the Magic Bullet did the job.
Anyone out there have a processor they love?
Here is the squash as it came out of the oven. mmmmmmmmm
These trays are great because they have covers, stack well, and you can write on them with dry erase markers. HOWEVER, it was VERY hard to get the frozen food out. I had to get DH to do it.
This is a soft mini muffin tray I usually use for baking. The frozen food popped right out, and it stores well in freezer bags.
The freezer is filling up! The containers with the purple tops are small reusable containers I had ordered from Tupperware. They are the "Freezer Safe" containers. As you can see, we started with the oranges.
