Christian just started on solids, and last night I made some sweet potatoes, put them in ice trays and froze them, and stored in Ziploc bags. It was so easy and CHEAP! Anyway, I was wondering how many of those cubes is equivalent to a jar of baby food? And what other foods can I make for him in his beginning stages? I am worried about the squash being seedy or stringy. Any tips you guys have would be soooo appreciated!! Also, how do I thaw the cubes? Do I just take them out a few hours in advace? Sorry for so many questions, I am still very new at this! Thanks in advance!

I make my own baby food as well, and I started my daughter out on Sweet potatoes, squash ,green beans, Apples, pears, bananas and peaches.... I used butternut squash, and it is a very smooth consistency..... It all turned out very well

First it depends on the size of your ice cube trays. I have 2 different types, one that holds 1.5 tbsp. and one that holds 1tbsp.

I think baby food jars are around 130ml or so.

So if your ice cube trays make 1.5tbsp. cubes then you'd need about 6 cubes to make 1 jar. If your trays make 1tbsp. cubes then you'd need about 9 cubes to make 1 jar.
