First, I purchase Organic Fresh Fruits and Vegetables. I buy enough to make a month supply of baby food at a time. It is good in the freezer for up to 30 days. I should say that things like banana's and avocado's I make just enough for a a few days, because they tend to turn brown and the flavor tends to change.

I got the Baby Bullet when I started and it is very helpful, but you could also use a Blender that has a puree setting or a food processor.
Since I make a months supply at a time I bought enough of the
4ounce, BPA free, microwavable and freezable plastic containers to store my baby food.

To start with I peel, and core all of the items that need to be done this way. ( I bought a apple core remover from Wal-Mart, Because it saves a ton of time.) Then I cut them up and boil them until they are soft enough to be blended.

After I make the baby food I disperse it between my Storage cups. I put about 2.5ounces in a container. This is as much as the first level baby food you buy at the stores. (You can always thaw out more if you need it.)

How much you make and store will depend on how many times a day you are feeding your baby solids and how much you are giving at each feeding. I try to prepare just what we need for the 30 days I am making the food to keep from wasting anything.
Start to finish it normally takes me about an hour to prep, steam/ boil, and blend and store the food. That's not to bad to have healthy, fresh, yummy food for your baby!
Here are a few pictures of my super cute, adorable Son enjoying his food prepared with love for him! ; )
