It took about 45 minutes to steam and puree the green beans and we made about 25 servings! Since baby food sells for 2 servings for $1.00 and we only paid $4.50 for 25 servings, we saved about $8.00. And I know exaclty what is in his food!
Take these green beans for instance.... certified organic, containing only green beans and no herbicides or pesticides! The only downside for me, was I had not planned ahead and the fresh vegetables were slim pickings so we did have to use frozen.
The green beans... ready to go!
In the pan...

Ready to be pureed

The finished product!
Gabe's 1st green beans, ready for his belly.
Gabe is ready to eat!
Not the oatmeal he was expecting....
After Gabe's initial shock of the new taste and texture of the green beans he with the funny faces and began babbling, squealing and smiling between each bite!
A few more days of beans and then Gabe will try his Momma's least favorite veggie, peas!
