Pear Puree


You will need:
1 ripe pear, peeler, knife, chopping board, saucepan, and liquidizer (all cleaned well)

Step One:
Peel, de-core and chop your pear into small pieces

Step Two:
Place chopped pear into saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to boil.  Cook until very soft to touch with a fork

Step Three:Cooking with Canberra Mummy
Pour most of the water out into a separate jug.  Pear retains a lot of liquid so if you have too much water it becomes very slushy.  You can always add more of this liquid later if needed.

Step Four:
Once pear has cooled a little, place into liquidizer and blend to your desire.  Normally only takes about fifteen seconds for me and I like mine quite smooth.  Pear becomes tricky to mix once it has cooled a lot.

Step Five:
Wait until puree has cooled a lot and serve to baby.  Or place puree into ice cubes and put into freezer for later use.  Once frozen store in air tight bags or containers for a couple of months.
