Who makes their own baby food? Do you have any good tips on making your own baby food?

I did for my first two, but not yet for my baby, he has really just started eating foods, and if I ever find the time, I will make his too!
For fruits, I would just steam them to make them mushy and then mash them either with a fork or in the food processer, add water from the pot to dilute more. I used --pears, peaches, apples, apricots. Bananas are the easiest, just peel and mash!
I did different things for different veggies. For squash just cut in half and bake until mushy. For sweet potatoes, peel and boil and mash. I steamed carrots and used the water in the pot to mash. I used jar food for green beans and peas since they required more effort. ;)

I plan on making our own - i didn't with DS, but want to this time around. I just got a pressure cooker for christmas, so that is what i will use to cook apples, peaches, pears - well, basically everything. Then i am going to put them in ice cube trays, cover them with foil or saran wrap and put them in the freezer. Then, when we are going to go out for the day or so, i can put them in a ziplock baggie or tupperware and by the time we need to use them, they will be thawed out and ready to eat :P

I made a LOT of homemade baby food for my son and it was easy and fun after I'd found out how! I've plunked all the information at http://baby-food.romanvirdi.com for all to use. Enjoy!
