What's Up Doc?

We can officially add bunny to the list of family members. Cati tried carrots for the first time today and she seemed to really like them. At first she didn't know what to make of them but then she was all smiles. I think she enjoyed the carrots more than she did the peas.

Carrot Purée
Makes 1/2 cup

1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup water
Breast milk, formula, or cooking water

In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the carrots and cook 5-6 minutes or until the carrots are easily forked. Drain carrots(reserve 1/2 cup of cooking water if you are going to use water to thin out the purée), place in food processor, and purée. Add fluid until carrots reach the best consistency for eating.

Storage: Good for 3 days in the fridge in an airtight container or up to 3 months in the freezer.

Note: since this was Cati's 1st carrots meal, I made it pretty liquidy. I added about 3 oz of breast milk to get the purée to a consistency I felt she'd be able to eat.

The players.
Freshly puréed.

Smoothed out by the breast milk.
