Method

  1. Peel and cut a pear into chunks so as to avoid the little seed portion.
  2. Steam gently until tender.
  3. Place in a blender/food processor and puree until smooth. You may be able to just use a fork instead.
  4. Add extra hot water if needed but pears tend to be very runny and watery without adding liquid - add some baby cereal to thicken if needed.
