Equipment

  • Blender / Food Processor / Stick Blender
  • Pot with lid

Ingredients

  • 6 Pears
  • 4 tbsp Water
  • Spices optional - see notes

Instructions

  • Wash and peel the pears.
  • Halve and core each pear and then cut into small pieces.
  • Add the chopped pears and 4 tbsp of water (and spices if desired) to a pot. Cover and cook over low heat until tender. (This will depend on how soft the pears were before cooking - anywhere from 4-16 mins)
  • Once cooked transfer the pears to a food processor/blender and puree to desired consistency.

Notes

  1. You can use any variety of pear.
  2. If you prefer a thicker consistency you can mash instead of puree.
  3. If your pears are really ripe you may not have to cook before pureeing/mashing.
SPICES - Why not try adding a little cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove, nutmeg or star anise when cooking the pear.  If using whole spices, remove before blending.
