6 months: Yummy Apple-Pear Purée

Seckel pears are delicious, miniature-sized pears that are in season between August and January. Given their size, they’re ideal for making baby food purées, and because they are naturally sweet, babies love them! Pears are also a rich source of nutrients.

Ingredients:
1 ripe Seckel pear or 1⁄2 pear of another variety
1⁄4 cup (60 g) unsweetened applesauce
1⁄4 cup (60 ml) unsweetened apple juice

Stovetop Method:
Peel, core, and chop the pear. Put it into a small saucepan with the applesauce and cook covered on medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, until mixture is soft. Allow mixture to cool slightly, then add to blender with juice and whip into a smooth purée.

This recipe, covered tightly, will last for 2 days in the refrigerator.

Yield: 4 baby servings, 2 tablespoons (30 g) each

Each serving contains: 28.4 calories; 0.0 g total fat; 0.0 grams saturated fat; 0.0 mg cholesterol; 1.0 mg sodium; 7.4 g carbohydrates; 0.9 g dietary fiber; 0.1 g protein; 6.1 mg calcium; 0.1 mg iron; 9.5 IU vitamin A; and 3.7 mg vitamin C.
