Reply tricia says: January 18, 2010 at 12:03 am Yes, peel and core the pears. I suppose I should add that to the instructions!

Reply Tricia says: December 22, 2011 at 10:28 pm Yes you can, they just might brown faster is all. Reply Sheryl says: May 3, 2012 at 3:18 pm 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? Reply Tricia says: May 3, 2012 at 10:30 pm 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. Reply Ruthie says: May 22, 2012 at 12:03 am 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… :) Reply Tricia says: May 22, 2012 at 3:06 pm 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. Reply Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.
