Dice the Potato 10 Minutes
Wash the potato and lay on a cutting board. Choose a heavy knife and slice the sweet potato in half. Also slice off each end of the sweet potato. Slice each half into another half. By breaking down the potato into 4 pieces it will be easier to slice into planks. Lay each piece flat on the board and slice vertically into planks. Then stack the planks on top of each other and slice lengthwise into fries then crosswise into cubes. Video
Dice the Apples 2 Minutes
Stand the apple on a cutting board. Slice down vertically next to the core of the apple to create one quarter. Complete three more times until you have four quarters. Lay each quarter flat on the board and slice lengthwise then slice crosswise to create cubes. Video
Bake the Diced Sweet Potato 30 Minutes
Line a baking pan with wax paper and add the sweet potatoes to the pan. Spread the sweet potatoes evenly on the bottom of the pan.
Puree the Veggies and Fruit 5 Minutes
Place the Harder and Denser Veggies or Fruit in the blender first with water and start blending. IE: Raw apples are more dense then baked squash. As the harder ingredients start blending slowly add the other softer ingredients to the blender as it is blending. Add more water if the puree is chunky. Be sure to look at the blending puree as you are adding water to gauge how much water to add.
