Asparagus is wicked cheap lately. (I saw an ad for .88/lb at Sprouts this week!) And so I couldn't pass up making baby food out of it. Asparagus is a bit stronger and can cause gas, so I wouldn't introduce it very first... wait until at least 8 months. Also, asparagus makes great finger food, since it's naturally long and skinny and steams up so quickly in the microwave, so I decided to just make one bunch, and to freeze some more to use as finger-food later, when it's no longer in season and cheap (and as good). I found out if you vacuum seal the asparagus first, you need not blanch it before freezing. Cool eh? So I went a little crazy and froze, I think, 8 bunches of asparagus!
Anyway. Baby food. Simple.
1) Put on a few inches of water to boil in your favorite vegetable-steaming pot.
2) Remove the rubber band and use it to replace an old one "baby-proofing" your kitchen cabinets closed. :)
3) Rinse well.
9) Pop out cubes and put in labeled freezer bag for your future baby-feeding convenience.
