Bestsellers for Instant Pots
Firstly, yes, you can definitely use an Instant Pot for making baby food. The Instant Pot is a versatile kitchen appliance that can be used for cooking various types of foods, including vegetables and fruits required for making baby food. Here are some simple steps to get started:
Step 1: Choose the right ingredients
For babies, it's best to start with single-ingredient purees such as sweet potatoes, carrots or apples. Once your baby has tried a few different foods, you can experiment with combining flavors.
Step 2: Wash and prepare the ingredients
Wash and peel any fruits or vegetables that require it. Cut them into small pieces so they will cook faster.
Step 3: Add water to the Instant Pot
Add one cup of water to the inner pot of your instant pot.
Step 4: Add the prepared ingredients
Place your chopped fruits/vegetables in a steaming basket or on top of a trivet inside the Instant Pot.
Step 5: Set cooking time and pressure
Close the lid of the Instant Pot and set it to manual mode. Adjust pressure settings according to what is recommended in your recipe book or online source. Cook on high pressure for about five minutes.
Step 6: Release steam and blend
After cooking is complete, release steam using quick release method (but be mindful of hot steam). Remove any trivet or steaming basket from inside the pot before blending. Use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree until smooth.
That's it! You now have fresh homemade baby food ready for your little one!
A few tips:
- Be sure to check with your pediatrician before introducing new foods into your child's diet.
- Let the food cool down before serving to your baby.
- Store any leftover puree in airtight containers and refrigerate for up to three days or freeze for up to three months.
The Instant Pot is a convenient and efficient tool for making healthy and tasty baby food. With these simple steps, you can now make homemade baby food that is free of additives or preservatives.
