Making own baby food

Has anyone ever made their own baby food? I'm definitely interested in trying but have no clue where to start. I assume I need some sort of puree blender? Any good beginner books on the subject? Do you think that it turned out to be cheaper or more expensive than buying the canned baby food?

It depends on the age of the baby, where you live and what your purpose is. The reason why I say where you live is if you live where fresh fruit and vegetables are plentiful, you might as well make your own. If your purpose is to want control over what your child is eating, definitely making your own is best.
