I finally figured out how to make smooth, pureed rice cereal! The first time I made it, it was clumpy and really gross, but I was determined to try one more time. Here's what worked for me:
1. Ground rice in blender in 1/2 to 1 cup increments. It takes a couple of minutes, but make sure it turns into a fine powder.
2. Break out your rice maker and cook your rice powder according to the rice maker's instructions.
3. Place cooked rice (mine was a huge solid chunk and looked like really lumpy mashed potatoes) back into your blender. Add water or breastmilk/formula and blend until smooth. I left mine pretty thick and plan to just thin it out with a little milk or fruit when she's ready to eat it.
Anyone have any other helpful tips for making baby food?
