Today I wanted to keep going with our baby food making adventure. I thought I would add pears to the mix. This is the easiest recipe ever! Technically you don’t even have to cook them since they are such a soft fruit. However, by cooking the pears you can help break down the sugars. It makes it a lot easier for your little one’s digestive system to break them down. I’m all about making it easier on their little bodies, especially since this whole solid food thing is so new to him.
I created a video that walks through making your own baby food.
Or you can follow along below. It’s super, super easy to make this puree. I love it!
3 pears, or more (any kind will work) – $1.77 pound
Pot of boiling water
Wash and peel your pears. Deseed and chop them. Add to the pot of boiling water and let cook for about 5-8 minutes. Strain. Blend in a food processor or blender. I use my Magic Bullet that I purchased about 3 years ago. The younger your little one is the smoother your puree should be.
The best part about this whole recipe is that it takes less than 10 minutes!
It’s also not an expensive recipe to make, too. In my last post, I talked about how much jarred baby foods cost. I averaged it out and it came to be about $0.60 an ounce! I knew I could beat that by making them on my own. So far I’ve come out on top every single time. This one is no different.
I love saving money!! Boom!
Once it was all said and done, I put my extra puree in my Fresh N Freeze Reusable Containers and the OXO Baby Food Tray. For less than $15 I’m not able to make extra food, free them and then pop them into the fridge a few days before he’s ready to eat.
