Someone asked me yesterday, "How long does it really take to make baby
food?" Honestly, it's really fast and easy. This recipe took me
4 minutes and Kenya was in the kitchen with me playing while I cooked.
I washed 3 sweet potatoes (2 to make puree and one to make fries). I turned on the oven, cut up one to make fries and put the other 2 in the oven. In less then an hour I had 14 baby servings of puree, enough fries for Kenya to snack on for 2 days and the remainder for my husband and me for dinner. Really, it's that simple. And when it comes down to it, who doesn't love French fries? Yes, they're delicious when they're fried up in oil, but not exactly healthy. When baked, they're soft and perfect for babies with a few teeth (or even a bunch of teeth) to snack on. I've even made them in chip form for dinner parties and my guests loved them.
