Wash and peel pear(s).
Next, core the pear(s) and cut them in slices. I like to use one of those round apple cutters that cuts the pear in 16 slices.
Steam pear(s) for about 10 minutes in a double broiler.
Set aside a few slices of pear(s) to offer as finger foods. *
Transfer the rest to a blender and puree.
Will keep in fridge for 3 days tops. You can also freeze in ice cube trays. I recommend using 1 oz ice cube trays so that you know the exact amounts you'll be taking out.
* 1 pear will give you about 2 oz. Make a bigger batch of pear puree and store extras in the freezer in 1 oz ice cube trays. To wash, peel and slice 12 pears, plan for 25 min prep time, 10 minutes cook time and a 24 oz yield. Do not add the coconut oil when making a bigger batch to freeze. Add it when reheating.
*If also offering sliced pears as a finger food, reserve a few slices. They will keep well in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. For the 6 month old baby, this can be 5-6 pear slices per feeding all the way up to a full pear (16 slices) per feeding for the older baby.
*If reheating from frozen, place frozen apple cubes in a sauce pan and add 1 tsp of oil (coconut oil, olive oil, bone broth) for every 2 oz.
