Remember me talking about how my baby doesn’t like baby food?

Now the question is, what do we do with all this jarred baby food that’s sitting 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 flavors 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 also use them 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.

How would you use empty baby food jars?

    The way I have always been though is to use them for my craft items like for my pens, needles, buttons. Anything that helps keep me more organized.

Got something to say?
