1 1/2 cups or 6 (1/4-cup) servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)

Be sure to peel and cut the pears just before you cook them so they won't have time to turn brown.


How to Make It

Step 1

Place pear in a vegetable steamer. Steam, covered, 8 minutes or until tender.

Step 2

Place pear in a food processor; process until smooth.

Step 3

Kitchen Tip The riper the fruit, the less steaming time it takes to soften the flesh, so use the lower end of the cook time range.

Step 4

Easy Freezing This recipe is based on 1/4-cup serving sizes. If you freeze batches in ice-cube trays, one cube usually holds 2 tablespoons. We recommend defrosting just one cube when baby is new to solid food. Later on when baby has started eating more, defrost two to four cubes (2 to 4 ounces or 1/4 to 1/2 cup).
