- Pears: Pears are inexpensive fruits that you can easily find at almost any grocery store year-round. You can use any pear variety you prefer for this recipe. Since organic pears are just a fraction more than conventional ones, I recommend going with an organic variety as they have more polyphenols and antioxidants, but that is completely up to you.
- Warming Spice: We are kicking up the flavor profile of the pears by pairing them with a warming spice such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, or cardamom. To be clear, you don’t add them all; just pick one and add a pinch. Trust me, they all taste amazing with pears, and I will not be surprised at all if I find you in your kitchen eating a bowl of this puree. 😉 But you can always skip adding the spices to your baby food if you prefer (see more below).
Type of Pears to Use: While my favorite pear to use for this recipe is Bartlett pear, you can use any type of pear you prefer — whether it’s Bosc Pear, Taylor’s Gold Pear, Anjou Pear, Asian Pear, or Comice.Step-by-Step Instructions
- Prep: Peel and roughly chop the pears.
- Mix: Place the pear chunks, spices (if preferred), and water into a medium saucepan.
- Cook: Cover and heat for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
- Blend: Let it cool slightly and then transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Eat: Serve or freeze for another meal.
While I love the crisp and slightly sweet flavor of simmered pears, there are several ways you can cook pears for baby food.Steaming
Peel and roughly chop 6 pears. Place the cubes into a steamer basket over 2 inches of boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork. Puree in a blender as directed below.Roasted
Cut 6 pears in half. Place them into a medium roasting tray with the cut side down. Add enough water to cover the very bottom of the tray. Cook at 400 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork. Puree in a blender as directed below.
Frequently Asked Questions
When can baby eat pears?
Babies can have pears as one of their first foods. When a baby can start on solids is determined by their own rate of development, which generally comes between 4-6 months of age. Some of the developmental milestones babies need to reach in order to start solids include: if your baby has solid control of their head and neck, if your baby has doubled in weight, and if your baby is reaching for or opening their mouth when you eat (see my guide here). Before you start your baby on purees, you should consult with your pediatrician to make sure your child is developmentally ready.
Can pears be baby’s first food?
Pears can 100% be your baby’s first food if you want it to be. It is recommended to wait to introduce the top eight allergen foods to your baby once a few other well-tolerated foods have been introduced, but otherwise, foods can be introduced in any order so choose whatever you are most excited for your baby to have.
Are pears a common allergen for baby?
No, pears are not a common allergen, however, as with any food, start with a small portion and be aware of any signs that might be an allergic reaction after introducing it.
Do pears cause constipation for babies?
Pears are not known to cause constipation in babies, but are actually one of the “P” fruits known to help alleviate constipation.Tools Needed
These tools will make it a lot easier for you to make this healthy Green Bean Puree. For more of my favorite kitchen tools make sure to check out my shop.
- Steamer insert with lid
- Blender or Food Processor
- Freezer Tray
- Storage Containers for Fridge
- Stasher Bag
- Bib with catch pocket
- Reusable pouches
While the most popular option is adding cinnamon to pear baby food, you can also add in cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, fresh mint, fresh basil, freshly grated ginger, or even allspice (see quantity recommendations in the recipe card).
Tip on Spices: I always add spices or herbs to my baby food purees, but you can choose to leave them out in all of your baby food. You do you! Either way, this puree will surely taste amazing.How to Store Pear PureeRefridgerator
You can store this puree in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.Freezer
This puree can be frozen for up to 4 months.
- Spoon puree into a freezer storage container. Do not overfill.
- Place the lid on the storage container or cover it with a piece of saran wrap, and label it with the date and recipe name.
- Place the tray into the freezer and let it freeze completely — preferably overnight.
- Pop-out the baby food cubes and place them in a ziplock baggie or stasher bag. Don’t forget to relabel the baggie or stager bag for future reference.

Label Tip: Don’t forget to label your purees before you place them in the fridge or freezer with the name of the puree and the date you made it. Take it from me; by the end of the week, you will completely forget what is in your freezer and how long it’s been there… because you know… mommy brain. 😉Great Pear Combination Purees
While this pear puree is flavorsome and great by itself, it’s also super easy to mix and match with other nutrient-dense baby food purees. So give these fun Stage 2 flavor combos a try!
- Quinoa Baby Cereal
- Sweet Potato
- Soft Tofu
PUREE FEEDING TIPS
- Try adding a little seasoning or spice to purees – babies like flavor! Or consider changing the temperature of purees from time to time, to slightly warmed or slightly chilled. Varying these aspects adds to the sensory experience!
- Place a small amount of puree on the tray during spoon-feeding, so that your baby can dip their fingers or hands in the puree. Allowing your baby to explore foods in this way helps them learn to self-feed and can help them be more willing to try new textures and foods in the future.
- Purees are great to keep in your baby’s regular rotation of foods – but if you start feeding with traditional weaning using purees, make sure to progress beyond eating ONLY purees. Once your baby can safely and comfortably swallow purees (usually by 7 or 8 months) it’s time to introduce other textures, such as teething biscuits and soft-cooked finger foods. Moving onto additional textures in a timely manner may help prevent feeding difficulties at a later age.

- 6 pears
- 1/8 tsp cardamom or other spice (see notes)
- 1/4 cup water
Prep: peel and roughly chop the pears.
Combine: place the pear chunks, spices (if using) and water into a medium saucepan, cover.
Cook: heat on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork
Transfer: let cool slightly. Using a slotted spoon, scoop the pears out of the saucepan, leaving the excess water behind, and place in a blender or food processor.
Blend: turn on the machine and blend for 1-2 minutes until you have your desired consistency. If your pear puree is too thick, add the leftover cooking water in 1/4 cup increments.
Eat: serve to baby or freeze for another meal.
Age: 4-6 months and up
Yield: roughly 20 ounces
Additional Spices: You can also use 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp cardamom, 1/8 tsp allspice, 1/4 teaspoon freshly minced ginger, or a pinch of freshly chopped basil or mint.
Note on Pears: while my favorite pear to use for this recipe are Bartlett pears, you can use any type of pear you prefer – Bosc Pear, Taylor’s Gold Pear, Anjous Pear, Asian Pear or Comice.
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months.

Pear Puree for Baby (Pear Baby Food)
Published: · Modified: by Laura · This post may contain affiliate links.Jump to Recipe
This homemade pear puree is an easy baby food recipe that's made with only two ingredients- pears and water! Making homemade pear baby food costs so much less than store-bought jars! It's easy to make it organic too, by using organic pears!
Pears are one of the first fruits I introduce to my babies, and they all go crazy for them. They are sweet, and full of fiber to help keep things moving in the digestive tract (if you know what I mean), plus it's so easy to make baby pear baby food at home!
I always have made my baby food from scratch, from sweet potatoes, to baby food carrots, to combinations like pumpkin apple baby food, I always prefer homemade over store bought! Not only does making your own baby food save SO much money, but it's also easy to make it organic with minimal ingredients!
This homemade pear puree is an easy baby food recipe that is great for little ones of all ages. It's made with only two ingredients- pears and water - with the option of adding some cinnamon once you're certain your baby isn't allergic to pears!How to make Pear Puree for Baby
There are two ways to make baby food pears. For younger babies with sensitive tummies, I recommend cooking the pears first. For older babies who still love their purees, you can simply blend fresh pears with water, no cooking required! I will show you how to make baby food pears that are cooked!Cut and Cook the pears
Begin by cutting each pair into about six pieces. Then place the pears into the container of a slow cooker.Add water
When using 8 small pears (which measured to be about 6 cups), add ½ cup of water.Cook
Next, cook the pears (if desired). I have used two methods to cook pears to make pear puree:
- Slow cooker - Cook the pears on high for 1-2 hours, or until the they are soft. Notice they will change color as they cook! I love this method because I just toss them in the slow cooker and walk away. No need to watch them as they steam!
- Steam on the stovetop - If you'd prefer, simply put the pears in a pot with the water, or in a steaming basket, and steam the pears on the stovetop for about 10-20 minutes, until they are soft.
Place the contents of slow cooker (water and cooked pears) into a Vitamix Blender (or anther high-powered blender). Blend for 30-60 seconds until smooth.Store or serve to baby
Transfer the pear puree to ice cube trays to freeze, or individual containers to store in the refrigerator. I love these silicone ice cube trays. I found them after I had baby #4 and I couldn't believe I went so long using floppy, difficult trays! These silicone ice cube trays have a firm outer rim, making them easy to transport, and a lid for storage! The wells hold a good amount of puree too!To reheat frozen pear puree:
Reheat one or two cubes of pear puree in a glass container in microwave for 40-60 seconds. You could also warm it on the stovetop or let it thaw at room temperature for several hours!FAQS: Pear Puree for Baby
Here are some frequently asked questions about pear baby food!
Do you have to cook pears for baby food?
The answer to this question depends on the age of your baby and softness of the pears. I prefer to cook pears to make pear puree until my baby is 8-10 months old because it makes them easier on their tiny little tummies. If you buy soft, juicy pears, you can blend them without cooking them!
Can I give raw pear to my baby?
Once your baby is 8-10 months old, you can feed him or her raw, peeled pears. I recommend peeling to reduce the risk of gagging and choking. Also, be sure to stay very near your baby when you feed her finger foods, to prevent choking. Before 8 months, I recommend cooking the pears before feeding them to your baby for easier chewing and digestion.
What age can my baby eat pears?
You can feed cooked and pureed pears to your baby at 6 months old!
Are pears constipating for babies?
No! Quite the contrary! I find the fibrous nature of pears keeps the systems flowing (if you know what I mean)!
What kind of pears are good for baby food?
I recommend using organic pears, especially if you will be cooking and pureeing them with the skins on. My babies have loved all pears, but I try to stick to soft, sweet varieties like Anjou, Bartlett, Bosc, and Comice!

Pear puree - Encyclopedia Baby foodVictoria Levchuk©
Not only are pears a very tasty fruit, but they also contain fiber, vitamin C and potassium. These nutrients have a positive effect on the heart, immunity and digestion!
Most parents recommend pears as a first food because they easily affect the digestive tract. The peel of a pear contains three to four times more antioxidants than the flesh and protect the body from cancer! The pear is classified as a slightly allergenic product, but we still monitor the reaction. Usually, when introducing complementary foods, a pear is the second green fruit after an apple.
Baby pear puree recipe suitable for baby 6-7 months old. Introduced complementary foods: green pears.
Print a recipe
Simple and tasty recipe for puree made of pure for babies.
- 2 ripe pears
Clean and cut into pieces, remove seeds.
Gently steam until tender if baby is under 6 months old. You can also boil it in water over a fire.
Place in a blender / food processor and puree until smooth; You can just use a fork!
Leftover fruit decoction can be used if desired, but pears tend to be very runny and watery with no added liquid. Since I cooked a pear with a peel, I had to peel it at the end before whipping. It is better not to cook mashed potatoes with the peel, it is difficult to digest at first.
Add oatmeal or rice flakes (optional and if included in diet) to thicken.
Great for constipation.

90,000 puree from pears: how to make homemade pear puree
Tags: Pear puree
Pears are an ideal fruit for the first feeding. They are hypoallergenic and do not cause bloating in children. Adults, along with kids, also love to enjoy delicate pear puree. A selection of recipes presented in this article will please both children and adults.
Ingredients: pears, citric acid, sugar
Time for laying: All year
- 1 Choose pears for puree
- 2 puree from pears for the first feeding
- 2.1 from bent fruits boiled fruits
- 2.3 With natural apple juice
- 3 Pear puree for the winter in jars
- 3.1 Natural puree for the winter
- 3.2 Puree with sugar and citric acid
- 3.3 Pear puree with milk
- 4 How to freeze puree
Choosing pears for puree
For adults, puree can be prepared from absolutely any variety of pears. The main thing is that the fruit is as ripe as possible. In case of a lack of natural sweetness, the workpiece can be flavored with granulated sugar.
When it comes to feeding your baby, the choice of raw materials needs to be taken more seriously. Pear varieties with green skins will not cause allergies. Preference should be given to fruits with juicy and tender pulp. Such properties are possessed by fully ripe varieties Williams, Komis and Conference.
In addition to varietal diversity, attention should be paid to the integrity of the skin. It must be undamaged. Fruits should not have dents, traces of rot or wormholes.
Puree of pears for the first food
From baked fruits
Well-washed pears are cut in half and the seed box is removed. Right with the skin, the fruits are sent to the oven, heated to 180 degrees. After 15 minutes, the pulp will completely soften and can be scraped out with a dessert spoon.
Instead of an oven, you can bake pears in the microwave at the maximum power setting. The cooking time is reduced by 5 times! The pear will be ready for further processing in 3 minutes.
The softened pulp is ground through a sieve or punched with a blender until smooth. If the puree is too thick, then it is diluted with clean boiled water.
Rinse the pear thoroughly under running water and peel. Then each fruit is cut into two parts and freed from seeds. The slices are crushed into small cubes or strips. Fruit slices are folded into a saucepan and poured with a small amount of water. Cook the mass under a tightly closed lid over medium heat for 10 minutes. The finished pieces are removed from the bowl with a slotted spoon and ground to a homogeneous consistency. The broth can later be used to prepare a delicious vitamin compote or jelly.
With natural apple juice
The technology for preparing this puree differs from the previous recipe only in that the pear is boiled not in water, but in freshly squeezed apple juice. Such puree is offered to the baby at a later date of complementary feeding.
Recipe for children's pear puree without cooking, see the video from the Golder Electronics channel
Pear puree for the winter in jars
Natural puree for the wintercitric acid.
Fruit is boiled and ground in a blender. The homogeneous mass is again put on fire and boiled for 10 minutes. In the meantime, sterilize the container. The hot mass is placed in containers and covered with boiled lids. Tightly twist the jars only after 20 minutes of sterilization in a water bath.
Puree with sugar and citric acid
- pears - 1 kilogram;
- granulated sugar - 250 grams;
- water - 2 tablespoons;
- citric acid - 1/3 teaspoon.
Pieces of peeled pears are placed in a thick-walled saucepan. Add water to the cut. The container is put on fire and stewed under the lid for 15 minutes.
The boiled mass is crushed until smooth. Add sugar and acid to it. Before packing in jars, the puree is kept on fire a little more, 5 minutes will be enough. Tightly twisted jars are covered with a warm blanket and left for a day.
For more information about this recipe, see the video from the channel "Family Menu"
Pear puree with milk
- pears - 1.5 kilograms;
- milk 3.5% fat - 1.5 liters;
- granulated sugar - 1.5 kilograms;
- water - 50 milliliters;
- soda - 5 grams.
Peeled pears are cut into arbitrary pieces, poured with water and put on fire for 1 hour. After boiling, add the right amount of sugar and continue heating the mass. When the fruit slices are well boiled, soda and milk are added. Bring the workpiece to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat to a minimum. Cook puree for 3 hours.
After the specified time, the mass is crushed with a blender to a creamy state, heated again on fire for a couple of minutes, and sent to sterile jars.
