Pear-Apple-Cinnamon Baby Food

Make this recipe for your baby without the cinnamon stick the first time you try it. This will help you identify if the cinnamon causes any adverse reactions when you first introduce it.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe USA Pear
  • 1 apple
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Directions

Peel the pear and apple, remove the core, and cut them into chunks.

Place the pear and apple pieces into a saucepan and add enough water to just cover them.

Add the cinnamon stick and simmer the mixture gently until the fruit is tender. If the pear is very ripe, it may soften before the apple – so remove it first to avoid overcooking.

Remove the cinnamon stick, then puree or mash the fruit to suit your baby’s preferences.

 

Baked Pear and Carrot Mash

Ingredients

  • ½ ripe USA Pear
  • 1 carrot

Directions

Peel and core the pear and cut into chunks. Peel the carrot and cut into strips.

Take a square of foil and wrap the carrot and pear together to form a parcel, sealing securely to hold in the steam.

Bake at 375 degrees until tender, then puree or mash as desired.

 

Pear and Raisin Mash

This recipe is recommended for babies 6 months and older.

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe USA Pear
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • Melted butter (unsalted)
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice

Directions

Soak the raisins in the apple juice until softened. Peel and core the pear, then slice it.

Arrange the pear slices on a pan and brush with melted butter. Broil, turning occasionally, until tender.

Mix the cooked pear with the apple juice and softened raisins, then puree or mash as desired.

 

Cinnamon Pear with Cream Cheese

This recipe is recommended for babies 6 months and older.

Ingredients

  • 1 USA Pear
  • Apple juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • Drop of maple syrup

Directions

Peel and core the pear, then cut into chunks. Place into a small saucepan and just cover with apple juice.

Add the cinnamon stick and simmer until the pear is tender.

Remove the cinnamon stick, then puree or mash the pear.

Stir the maple syrup into the cream cheese.

Spoon the warm pear into your baby’s bowl and top with a blob of the cream cheese. Yum!

  • ¼ cup finely chopped celery
  • ½ cup milk (use breast milk or formula if you prefer)
  • Pinch each of chopped fresh thyme and oregano
  • Small pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • Drop of olive oil

Directions

Peel and finely chop the onion, then sauté in the oil over medium heat until golden. Add the broth, squash, pears, and celery and bring to a rolling boil.

Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

Add the milk and seasonings, stir well and cool to a safe serving temperature, pureeing if desired.

 

Pear and Quinoa Breakfast

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup quinoa
  • 1 small, sweet USA Pear
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon sultanas
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Directions
