Pear Peel Revisited

Everyone knows that pear makes an ideal first food for baby. But just because young babies aren’t ready for the peel, that's no reason to throw it away. There are perfectly good grown-ups in your home, ready and willing to eat this "baby leftover".

8 ideas for using pear peel leftover from baby’s puree:

1. Insalata di Arance [see Dec. 8, 2008 post on this blog]
2. Serve with yoghurt, pumpkin seeds and honey for iron rich breakfast or desert
3. Toss into any green vegetable salad
4. Add to any chutney recipe
5. Add to any Bichermuesli recipe 
6. Coat with ground cinnamon or ground cardamom and add to cake or muffin recipe
7. Add to pancake batter or saute lightly with butter and serve with cooked pancakes
8. Use as a layer in a ramekin desert [see Jan 11, 2009 post on this blog]
