First things first wash your potatoes with a brush and get as much dirt off of it as possible.

Get a pot with a few inches of water and put a steaming basket in. Bring water to a boil.

Next, peel and cut ends off of potato and cut into big chunks. Don’t forget to throw your peels and ends in the compost.

Drop potatoes in pot and cover.

Allow to steam for about 20-30 minutes or until you can pierce them with a fork very easily. Just like regular russet potatoes.

Once done allow to cool for a bit and put them in a blender or food processor. Add some filtered water, breastmilk or formula and blend those puppies up.

Pour potaoes in ice cube trays. Cover with press and seal wrap. Label and place in freezer.

Once frozen take trays out for about five minutes. This makes popping out the cubes a lot easier. Then pop out the cubes and place in freezer bag. Date, label and high five yourself!

How easy peasy was that. Now get yourself a crap ton of potatoes, make a big batch freeze them like I told you and you have ย baby food for a month. I’ll do big batches of a few things, that way I can mix cubes up and give my little poodle noodle a variety.

To cook just heat them up in microwave for about 30 seconds to a minute.
