Pear Puree By Any Other Name: Recipe
She really liked this - but then again, what's not to love? The pear was merely made puree-able...so what can you do with this? Well, if you're ever in need of a soft-food diet, this is a good option. If you'd like to add this to the dinner table instead of apple sauce for something like a pork chop, you certainly could. See? Who would have thought that a simply baby food inspired meal could be something you could get use out of?
Puree of Pear
makes about 1 1/2 cups
2 medium-large pears, peeled and sliced
In a medium pot, pour 1/2 cup of water. Place pear in a steamer basket (or in my case, I used a mesh strainer with a lip and a handle so I was able to rest the strainer on the pot) over the water - but not touching it. Cover tightly and raise heat to high - let cook about 5-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of your slices and the ripeness of the pear.
When finished, place the cooked pear into the food processor with a tablespoon of the cooking water and puree until finely textured.
