Ingredients

8 ripe pears


For infants, peel and core the pears. The peel can be left on for toddlers. Cut the pears into quarters.


Put the pears in a large pot with 1" water. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the pears are tender but not mushy. Ripe pears are naturally soft, so it is quite easy to overcook them.


Uncover and let the pears cool slightly in the pot. In batches, puree the pears and a few tablespoons of the cooking water in a blender or food processor to a consistency appropriate for your child.


Pour the pear puree into storage containers or ice cube trays. Let cool completely before refrigerating or freezing. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.


Tips: Pureed fruit is itself a wonderful ingredient. It's the easiest, freshest way to flavor oatmeal, rice cereal, yogurt, or soy or cow's milk.
