Makes 1/2 cup
1 cup slice sweet potato (I didn't peel it)
1 1/2 cup water
Breast milk, formula, or cooking water
In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the sweet potato and cook 5-10 minutes or until the sweet potato is easily forked. Drain sweet potato (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 sweet potato 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 plan on adding breast milk to the puree because I felt like Cati could handle a thicker consistency, but when I saw how thick the sweet potato was I added about 1.5 of breast milk to thin out the sweet potato.
The purée (by far the thickest food I have given Cati)
