Pears can be paired with anything or are absolutely delicious on their own.
Pear is not a first food I introduced to either one of my kids. I prefer to start with savory flavors ie: squash, peas, beans. I feel like - of course they'll like pear, apple, banana, they're sweet and delicious! I prefer to get them started with savory flavors and moving on from there.
However, I like to be stocked with pear puree because its a flavor that's pairs well with so many things. from beets to butternut squash the flavor combinations are endless. Pears also blend beautifully and have a really great texture and mix with other purees.
Pear puree is also great to have on hand as an addition when baking. Its a great substitute for eggs and keeps things light and moist.
Pear puree recipe:
peel and roughly chop pears (any type will do)
boil until fork tender
blend in food processor till smooth ( no additional liquid needed)
