I’m back in the habit of visiting the farmer’s market every weekend. Johnson’s Backyard Garden is just one of the vendors and they grow organic local produce. We had a CSA share with them for a month while I was pregnant in efforts to eat more veggies. I could not resist these butternut squash a few weeks back. I got a wild hair and bought 10 lbs! Emmet got a big batch of baby food out of it and we roasted some for ourselves as well. Hang on, I should say I roasted some for myself because I was the only one who ate it. I keep trying to will Dylan into eating more veggies so Emmet won’t have an excuse not to eat his when the time comes. I am not winning that battle… yet.
- Remove the ends, halve the squash the long way and remove the seeds
- Peel and cut into same size chunks
- Steam the squash, reserving some of the remaining water
- Puree the steamed squash using the remaining water to thin it out
There was a cantaloupe in the background in that photo. I also made some more popsicles for Emmet. I used the same method found here. The popsicles came in extremely handy as E cut his second tooth. Yes, he has two now!
