Homemade Baby Food - Squash

Okay, I love making homemade baby food!!! I just went to the Farmer's Market and bought a huge butternut squash for $2-3. It made a ton of baby food (I'm thinking roughly $20 worth of store bought).

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash butternut squash really well.

Cut squash in half lengthwise.

Pull out all seeds and yucky stuff.

Put squash face (meat) down in baking pan.

Put 1-2 inches of water in pan.

Roast for 45-60 minutes.

Pour off excess water.

Peel squash.

Put insides in blender with some water.

Puree to desired thickness.

Scoop about 1 heaping tablespoon into ice cube tray slots.

Cover with aluminum foil.

Freeze until ice cubes.

Put in freezer bag (label with "squash" and date).

To Thaw:

Put in container in fridge overnight.
