Corny Issues

Cati tried corn for the first time yesterday and she hated it! I don't know if it was the consistency or the thickness but she did not like it at all. She did not want it in anywhere near her mouth. Right after trying the corn, she didn't want to eat anything else. I had to wait 15 minutes before giving her other something else to eat. Maybe the corn left a bad taste in her mouth? Hopefully she likes corn when mixed with another veggie. And if not, corn will be our first complete failure.

Corn Purée
Makes ~1/2 cup

2 cups corn (frozen or fresh)
1 cup water
Dash of paprika (optional)
Breast milk, formula, or cooking water (optional)

In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the peas and cook 2-5 minutes or until corn floats to the top and is tender. Drain corn (reserve 1/2 cup of cooking water if you are going to use water to thin out the purée), place in food processor with paprika, and purée. Add fluid until corn reaches 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: I didn't add any breast milk at first because I thought the consistency was thin enough but after seeing Cati's reaction I added about 1.5 oz to thin it out some more.
