Remember me talking about how my baby doesn’t like baby food?
Now the question is, what do we do with all this leftover jarred baby food in the cupboard?
I have some ideas:
- Dump the contents of baby fruits and veggie jars into smoothies. Banana, apricot, and spinach would be especially good for this.
- Use veggies in soups and spaghetti sauce.
- Banana, prunes and apricots would work well in muffin and quick bread recipes.
- Some jarred baby food would taste great in pancakes (pumpkin, sweet potato, banana).
How else would you use up leftover jarred baby food?
The jars are great too. They’re the perfect size for organizing small things like paper clips, thumb tacks, buttons, screws and nails, etc. I’ve also used the jars to make “instant” mixes for single-serve microwave mug muffins or hot chocolate.
My older daughters use the jars to make their own lipstick and lip balm. (They melt broken crayons with coconut oil.)
Baby food jars are also good for storing tiny bits of leftover food. The last time we traveled out of town, I put dipping sauces and salad dressing in the jars in our cooler.
