Ingredients
 
 

  • 7-8 medium pears (about 8 cups diced)
  • 1 cup water (or apple juice)

Instructions
 

  • Roughly dice the pears, discarding the core and the stem
  • Add to a medium pot set over medium heat with the water. Cover and bring to a simmer. Remove the cover and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until the pears are very soft.
  • Turn off the heat and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Puree with an immersion blender or add pears and liquid to a standard blender. Blend smooth. (If using a standard blender, leave the vent open so the steam can escape while you blend.)
  • Store in the fridge or serve warm.

Notes

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze, portion into an ice cube tray. Freeze. Transfer frozen cubes to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw a few cubes at a time in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • You can use any variety of pear. They should be ripe, so not rock hard. (They can be very ripe and very soft if that's what you have.) 
  • I leave the skins on since my blender is very powerful and blends them in well. If you don't have a high powered blender, you can peel the pears.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or 1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger.
  • Serve it as a puree in a bowl or a reusable pouch.
  • You can also mix it with plain yogurt or oatmeal if you prefer.
