Pear puree not only tastes delicious, it is also a good source of fibre and is rich in vitamin C. Delicious on its own, spiced or mixed with a range of other purees.
Servings 15 baby portions
- 6 Pears
- 4 tbsp Water
- Spices optional - see notes
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.
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.
