The basics for steamed carrots:
1. Peel a large pile of carrots. We give the peels to the worms in our worm bin. mmmm.
2. Chop into 1-3" chunks and steam.
3. Add to food processor in batches. I like to recycle the water from steaming, this helps to get the thinner consistency and will provide liquid to Baby E in addition to the breast milk that I'll mix in at meal time.
4. Scoop out the mush and add to straight edged Ball canning jars. The straight ones help prevent cracking by providing room for expansion of the food without pressing on the lip at the top. Leave space, at least an inch, at the top of the jar then add the lid and ring. Label and freeze.
Note, if you haven't used your jars since last season or were gifted jars, you may find that the tops of them have rust stains on them. Try one of these tips to remove the rust. If you are really not comfortable with the jar, there are many uses for old mason jars.
