Pear, Fig & Carrot Purée
Pear, fig, and carrot purée is a twist on traditional pear puree. We had beautiful figs this fall in California and I added a carrot for a smoother texture since my son likes his baby food smoooooooth. The result are beautiful layers of flavor with some subtle sweetness. For babies 4-6 months, you can easily leave out the carrot and/or fig for a pure pear puree.
