  • Transfer steamed carrots to a food processor and process until almost smooth, scraping down sides periodically. Add 1/4 cup water from the saucepan and process until carrots are smooth. Repeat until desired consistency is reached.

  • Scoop 1/3 to 1/2 cup pureed carrots into sandwich-size resealable bags. Squeeze bag to remove excess air and seal. Flatten bags and stack in the freezer.

Cook's Notes:

Any type of vegetable can be used in place of the carrots.

Be sure that your work surface is clean and sanitized. Wash hands thoroughly with soap.

Place sticky label on each bag stating contents and date. Thaw by running under water, placing in fridge for a day, or in microwave.
