How to Make Butternut Squash Baby Food Puree


Preheat oven and prep butternut squash: Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut squash in half lengthwise, remove butternut squash seeds. Place squash flesh side down on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.


Roast Butternut Squash: Pour 8oz water onto the parchment paper. Roast for about an hour until tender. The squash should be bubbling and caramelized.


Puree Butternut Squash: Allow to cool 10-15 minutes until you can hold it without a problem. Peel off the outside thick skin and put flesh of the squash into a blender with 8oz water.


Prep for Freezer: Pour into ice cube trays, allow to cool, then wrap/cover and freeze.


Thawing to Serve: Thaw in the fridge the night before use, or thaw by putting the small cubes in a bowl over a bowl of hot water on the counter to defrost.
