Homemade Baby Food Recipes: Pear Puree

Loaded with fiber and Vitamin C – pear helps reduce constipation in babies and keeps their immune systems strong. I make pear in BULK and keep it in our freezer because we go through it so quickly.

Ingredients

  • 5 organic pears
  • 6-8 oz water for a thicker puree, use less water (and adjust water as needed)

Instructions

  • Wash fruit. (Any type of pear will do - I use Bosc or Bartlett).
  • Cut pears in half and remove seeds and stem. Cut each half into 6 pieces.
  • Put pear and water into a large pot. Turn the burner on high and cover with a lid.
  • Once the mixture comes to a boil, turn heat down to low and simmer, covered, for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the pears are soft and can be pureed.
  • Blend in a blender, puree until smooth.
  • Pour into ice cube trays, allow to cool, wrap/cover, and freeze.
  • Thaw in the fridge the night before use, or thaw by putting the ice cube in a bowl over a bowl of hot water on the counter to defrost.

Notes

Spice up your baby's food! To pear puree, you can add a pinch of ginger powder, a pinch of cinnamon, or even a bit of mint.
1 ice cube = 1 oz of food
