Peachy Keen Sweet Potatoes
Tools: Sharp knife, peeler, baking pan, blender or food processor
1 sweet potato – peeled and diced
2 ripe peaches – pitted and cubed
pinch of cinnamon or ginger
Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees
Combine sweet potato and peaches in a shallow baking dish and add just enough water to slightly cover the food. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon or ginger over the dish and stir, cover with foil.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until peaches and sweet potatoes are fork tender – check on the water level often!
Once fully baked, reserve any remaining water and transfer sweet potatoes and peaches to a bowl to cool.
Puree or mash as needed for your baby’s texture preference.
❄ May be frozen. Some wateriness may occur upon thawing – try adding some plain whole milk yogurt to reconstitute!
? Quick Tip: Bake a few sweet potatoes ahead of time and freeze them in chunks, that way you can take out a few chunks and use as needed, in any recipe you choose. This is a great time saver.
