Author: Charlotte March of San Francisco (Charlotte is a pretty amazing gal who was classically trained at the French Culinary Institute... learn more about why we love her here:)

When to introduce: 8-10 Months (check with your pediatrician)

Stars: Pears are high in fiber and contain a fair amount of vitamins C, K, B2, B3, and B6. Pears are also easy on baby's tummy. Cranberries are high in antioxidants and ginger helps with digestion.

I used 4 pears and reduced the ginger to 1tsp because it seemed a little strong. My 11 month old loves it! It made 6 pretty full pouches.
