There are 2 varieties of pears that are suggested for making baby food; anjou and bartlett. Bartlett pears were on sale this week, so that was a no brainer. The preparation of the pears was VERY similar to when I made apples, so it almost felt as though I had done it before. Again, I was a little worried that they would turn brown before I could cook them, but I wasn't as neurotic about it as I was before.
Six pears made 21 1 ounce servings for my freezer stash. I think Scout liked the pears better than apples because they weren't as sour, or at least her face indicated that they weren't. :)
