Pumpkins are not just for carving at Halloween. They are also great for roasting, baking and weaning. The flesh is really sweet and watery, making it an easy first taste for spoon fed weaning. This recipe is suitable for 4 months+ and is also great for making a Spiced Pumpkin Cake.
Makes approximately 15 portions.
- 1 medium sized pumpkin
Cut a hole in the top of your pumpkin and carve out the flesh.
Place into a saucepan with a splash of water and cook until sort (roughly 5-6 minutes)
Blend the pumpkin into a smooth purée and drain the excess water
If weaning, check the temperature of the purée against your lip before feeding your baby
