So you want to make your own baby food? Good news: You don’t need to clutter your baby registry -- or your cabinets -- with special equipment designed just for babies.


Here are 16 things that you may already have in your kitchen that you can use to whip up homemade meals for your little one. And no, you don’t need all of them. But you might want to pick up one or two you don’t have. Don’t worry: You can use them long after baby’s moved past purees to make meals for the whole family.
