VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Homemade Baby Food Peas Pumpkin Applesauce
Gideon is eating peas, pumpkin, and applesauce and it’s a really fast recipe and keep watching and I’ll show you how. Modern homemakers video intro, helping moms. Gideon, do you love to eat your vegetables? Only when I puree them and hide them that’s right. This is peas, pumpkin and a little bit of applesauce. Can you say yummy? Can you say thank you? There we go thank you.
We’re going to take a can of pumpkin. Make sure it’s not pumpkin pie filling because that’s full of sugar. This is just canned pumpkin. Don’t even have to get everything out because I’m going to dump applesauce into the same can so I don’t mess up a measuring spoon.
I’ve got this one that’s almost empty. So we’re going to measure applesauce. And with your applesauce you want to make sure, it’s ok if you can’t afford organic, I can’t either right now, but you want to make sure that it’s just apples. A lot of applesauce has corn syrup in it so, I think this is mott’s I had a jar that’s almost empty and it was just apples and I think I had a walmart brand like a store brand that was just apples. But, it’s surprising how many of them are just laced with corn syrup.
Watch out for that. Anyway, so I’ll finish filling off this can. If you’re making your own purees and your own applesauce, 1 can is about 2 cups. And then we’re just going to mix it. I like to use a whisk, you don’t have to use a whisk, you can use a spoon, but it makes it really fast to get it blended together.
So up until this point this recipe is exactly the same as the pumpkin applesauce baby food. But I’m going to go ahead and add in, I got these at big lots, and they had organic dehydrated baby food where you just add liquids. And I like to add it to smoothies and stuff to give kind of an extra oomf to the food. And I’m going to add this whole packet in here which is going to give us, I like to have more of a vegetable than fruit ratio going on because the babies already have such a sweet tooth especially with breast milk is very sweet.
Anyway so this is going to be 2 vegetables and one fruit and I just like that you can see it is going to discolor it a little bit but if you have it in the pooh! The pouch you’re not going to see that, you might see it in the pooh hahah! Anyway, just a few more seconds than making the pumpkin applesauce you can see that that now has that much more vegetables in it. And it’s the same thing with that one you can put it in a jar of baby food if you want and just fill those.
I will be wiping off the top here when we get done. I should have used a smaller spoon. Now if you wanted to put this in the freezer I think I probably filled it too far for that, I definitely wouldn’t go past like that point. Because when you put things in the freezer they expand and since I now have a toddler that wouldn’t be enough food so I’d have to use a larger jar.
So I’m just going to put this straight in the fridge, but I’m getting really lazy. I have 3 kids and the time it takes to sit down and feed the baby kind of disrupts from the whole meal time with everyone else. So, I recently got these and I’m so excited, it’s ufill, I’ll try to put a link below and you’re able to just fill them they’re not paying me to say this I actually happen to just love them that much. Anyway, you just fill it up and it acts just like those expensive pouch foods in the store that you shouldn’t be spending your grocery money on but you do, and you end up spending more money on the baby than everyone else!
I don’t know who I’m talking about here, ME. What we’re going to do with these things is I’m going to fill it up right to the middle, you can see the writing on the inside and it’s no biggie if you don’t fill it up perfectly every time. You might have food kind of squish out, you can see the inside there I’m just watching, and I’m going to wipe off with a rag, just like a ziplock,
And, we’ll see if I did it right, whew, had a little bit come out there. No biggie we’ll wipe it off again and let’s go see what the baby thinks. I make sure that he never gets to have the cap because I think it’s a choking hazard, and this is with the peas in there and he loves it. He doesn’t even know that it has more vegetables than the pumpkin applesauce he just ate he still loves it. He’s a good eater. That’s right, and if you watched both videos I totally gave him 2 pouches in a row, don’t judge me! Please subscribe to our youtube channel. You might also like how to cut baby boy hair.
