As a crunchy mama I am trying to get us to eat in season more and more. This is also a good way to save money while eating organic foods. I snatched up some organic honeydew melons earlier this summer and put them to good use in homemade babyfood. How, you ask? It’s so easy!
- Halve each melon, scoop out the seeds and remove the flesh from the rinds
- Cut the flesh into chunks, add to your blender and puree
- Pour into ice cube molds, freeze and store in ziploc bags marked with the date
I also got some popsicle molds. These are by Annabel Karmel but any brand will do. I liked these as they were on sale and they have a special lip where the melted liquid goes instead of dripping down baby’s hand. Pour your puree into the molds and freeze for tasty and healthy homemade organic popsicles. I first tried giving Emmet one in June and he was not into it. I tried again recently and he gobbled it up! I think teething has something to do with his change of heart.
