INGREDIENTS

1 pound carrots, peeled and trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Instructions

Put sliced carrots into a steamer basket and place in a saucepan filled with at least 1 inch of water. Place the pan with a tight fitting lid over high heat. Once the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium. Steam carrots for at least 45 minutes, until they are completely soft. Put steamed carrots with 1 cup of steaming liquid into the blender jar fitted with the blending blade. Pulse carrots on low 5 times and then run on low for about 45 seconds. Scrape jar down with a spatula and blend for an additional 20 seconds. If a smoother consistency is desired, pulse in 1 tablespoon of cooking liquid at a time to the purée. Allow mixture to cool. Fill ice cube tray or other 1-ounce containers to freeze or serve immediately. Baby food should be consumed within 2 to 3 days if not freezing.
