With fall in full swing and Joseph only a month or two away from starting solids I'm in the market for a good freezer for our basement. I am hoping to make all his baby food and would like to get a head start with all these great fall apples and squashes. But if I want to be able to make everything from fruits and veggies that are in season that means I'm going to have to make a ton then freeze it for the rest of the year.
I need to get on this so I can go ahead and make a bunch of apple sauce and buy some butternut squash and sweet potatoes and maybe some pumpkin or other squashes. If I were really on the ball I would have thought about this at the beginning of the summer and reaped the benefits of all the delicious summer fruit. Alas, I did not.
I started looking online for stand-up freezer and there are so many different options. I don't even know where to start. So, if you happen to know anything about buying a freezer or have a freezer that you're particularly happy with I'd love to hear from you. What features would you recommend?
Also, if you have any baby food recipes that you use and like I'd love those as well. I have a couple baby food cook books, but am keeping my eye out for good recipes :)
