Lamb Purée ~ 6-9 months

Lamb is easily digested by most babies older than 6 months, and presents yet another new flavor that you're not likely to find in jarred baby food. Babies start needing more iron in their diet around this age, and lamb is an excellent source of iron.

Steps

If using lamb chops, broil for 18–20 minutes, or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160°F. If using lamb shoulder or leg, roast at 325° F for 35–40 minutes.

Let the meat cool; then cut into small pieces and place in food processor or blender. Purée for about 30 seconds, until the meat becomes a chunky powder.

Add water or milk, 1 tablespoon at a time. Continue puréeing until smooth.
