Weaning recipe: Spiced pear purée
- Preparation and cooking time
- Makes about 175g
- 2 pears , peeled, cored and cut into chunks
- small pinch of cinnamon (optional)
- baby's milk
- STEP 1
Put the pear into a steamer over simmering water and cook for around 8 mins until tender.
- STEP 2
Blitz to a purée in a food processor along with a very small pinch of cinnamon, if using. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times while blitzing to get a smooth consistency throughout. Add a splash of milk (or water from the saucepan), if necessary, to create a smooth texture although usually pears will blitz well without.
- STEP 3
Serve one portion and divide the rest between small containers or ice cube trays and freeze.
