Peach and Pear Purée

Peach and Pear Purée

Simple, light, and packed with vitamin C and fiber, peaches and pears complement each other well. Since they’re also slightly sweeter than apples, try this recipe for a baby-approved alternative to traditional apple puree.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Ingredients

  • 1 (150g) medium peach, peeled and sliced
  • 1 (170g) medium pear, peeled, deseeded and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water

Preparation

  1. Place the ingredients into the Anyday dish. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 8 minutes, or until the fruit is very tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Using an immersion blender or blender, puree until mixture is as smooth or chunky as you like.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Feed just as a puree on its own, or mix it with some cooked rice or other grains if you’re starting on chunky foods. 
  • Serve on top of yogurt or cottage cheese.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
