{Homemade DIY Baby Food} Asparagus

Asparagus.

It gets a bad rep, for making some stink for a usually not so stinky bathroom function. LOL. Is there a nice way to say that? Hmm..

Well anyways, it's a great veggie. We ate freshly grown in our garden asparagus as a kid. Just the tops though, those were the most tender.  I found some frozen at Aldi's the other day when browsing frozen veggies, and thought to cook some up for Baby.



The usual how-to:
1. Fill pot with water

2. Bring to boil.

3. Add asparagus. Cook until tender.

4. Don't dump the water! Put stalks into blender, add some water.

5. Pulse your blender a few times. Does it need more water to work? Add more. If not go ahead a puree.

6. Put into containers of choice. Use up in 2-3 days, or freeze.

You could steam them too if you'd like. I went the easy boiling route, and also found I needed quite a bit of water for the blender to handle it.

So we tried the asparagus last night with dinner.  

And... drum roll.... Baby was not a fan.  Whomp, whomp :(
I wish I would have gotten a picture of that precious little face when he tried it!!

I wonder if it has to do with the texture. The asparagus I got was so very fibrous that the puree wasn't smooth at all.   We will try again tonight!  Maybe it needs to be mixed with something.... any suggestions from mama's whose babies enjoy asparagus?
