Q and A: Freezing with Muffin tins.
I bought your book about 2 months ago. Our afternoons have completely changed because I am not stressed about dinner or ignoring kids while trying to prepare the meal. Thank you for all the great ideas and recipes. I like your metal muffin tin idea on your blog, but I am wondering if it is difficult to get the pureed food out of the metal tin. What is the best way to get the food out of the tin? Thank you,
I’m so glad the book is working for you Meagen. Thank you for your email, you made my day. The pureed food is easy to get out of the tin if you set it on the counter for 10 minutes at room temperature. As soon as the food defrosts just a little, you can pop the frozen puree right out and place it in a large zip top bag and back in the freezer. I do lot of banana squash puree and then add cinnamon and brown sugar and powdered oatmeal for my baby. I also often make a veggie noodle and beef or chicken soup.(Using veggie noodles called Wacky Mac) It’s pretty simple. 5 C water, 2 C chicken stock or broth, 1 pkg curly noodles, 1 C diced veggies, 1 pkg country gravy mix, 1 lb shredded chicken or beef (precooked and frozen). Cook in a large pot and boil for 10 minutes. This is great to freeze in a muffin tin for baby. So healthy and easy to heat up and serve.
Best of luck and keep in touch if you have any more questions.
