    Do you need to peel and core the pears first?

  2. Shannon says:

    Wondering if you could steam the pears instead of boiling them?

    I was talking about baby food with a mom who had made it before (I haven’t yet) at Bed, Bath and Beyond and she said that the color, taste and texture changed when they were boiled so she recommended baking them. Have you done this before?

      It has been awhile but yes, I have done it this way. My kids always ate pears so I don’t think they cared, either way would work.

    Are pears freezable? I want to make these for my little guy but not 3 lbs. worth if they brown or go mealy when frozen… :)

    • Tricia says:

      They are freezable. They will perhaps brown a bit but if you freeze them quickly you should have no problems. I did it a lot when my kids were that age.
