Purest Pea Puree
When you first introduce your baby to solid foods, the consistency of the puree should be quite thin. We suggest adding formula, breast milk, or steaming liquid. As your baby grows, you can gradually reduce the amount of added liquid.

- 2 cups fresh shelled peas, or one 10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
Place peas in a steamer basket set over a pan of simmering water. Steam until peas are bright green and softened. Transfer to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade; puree until peas are perfectly smooth, adding liquid a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Pass through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding solids. Let cool slightly, and serve.
