Bartlett Pear Baby Food Recipe
Prep Time: 25 minutes
5 Hale Groves Bartlett Pears, peeled and cored
5 ounces water
Wash, peel, and core the Bartlett Pears. Cut each pear into about four pieces. Place pear chunks into a saucepan, add water, and cook on medium-high heat for about ten minutes. Stir occasionally until pears are tender. The mixture should boil but not stick. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add cooked Bartlett Pears and water to blender and puree until smooth. Pour mixture into ice trays, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze. Each cube is about one ounce, for easy measuring. Remove individual cubes and thaw in refrigerator before serving.
