Don’t worry, this isn’t nearly as violent or risky as it sounds. I have a new toy:
Making purées with our standard food processor, was, as I mentioned last week, somewhat time consuming. This was causing me to spend a ridiculous amount of time whizz, whizz, whizzing. Quite frankly, it was boring. And because of the size, I was also having to make double, if not triple the portion sizes to fill the processor. Our freezer really isn’t that big!
Well not any more! My dad sent us a little gadget called the Baby Bullet. A small, baby-sized blender with which to prepare purees for Baby Girl. It has different bowl sizes for different portion sizes & two different blade types. One for fruit & veg, the other for when she’s on to slightly more advanced foods like porridge or whatever more advanced babies eat. (Haven’t got that far in my weaning book yet. Can you tell?)
In just over an hour, I made three different batches of purées for the week with a few extra pots worth for freezing (rather than 8 extra pots worth). Much better.
The Baby Bullet is £49 from Amazon. It does have quite mixed reviews on Amazon, but so far, my experience has been nothing but positive. My only qualm is that it can’t go in the dishwasher. Which is quite a downside when I already have bottles to wash daily and purées to prepare. But swings & roundabouts.
