"Once you introduce meat to your baby, lamb is a great choice, not least because it's high in iron, which babies need as their iron stores start to dwindle around 6 months old. My little one loved this lamb and it was so easy and cheap to make."

  1. Place the lamb shank in a saucepan, cover with water, and add thyme. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until meat is falling off the bone, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Transfer lamb and 16 ounces cooking liquid to 2 separate containers. Place in the refrigerator to chill, 1 hour to overnight. Discard remaining cooking liquid.
  3. Skim off any solidified fat from the chilled cooking liquid and discard.
  4. Remove meat from bone and place in a food processor. Discard bone, excess fat, and tendons. Add 2 1/2 ounces cooking liquid to the meat and process until a fine, even texture is achieved, adding more liquid as needed.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To freeze for later, spoon 1-ounce portions of the mixture into a baby food freezing tray. Freeze and use within 3 months.
