Pumpkin Baby Food Recipe
Pumpkin Baby Food Recipes for (6-8 months) Babies
Recipe Ingredients :
1 sugar or pie pumpkin, halved and de-seeded
1 inch water in baking pan
1 dash of cinnamon (optional)
Recipe Instructions :
1. Select a small sugar pumpkin (also known as baking or pie pumpkin) that is about 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
2. With a sharp butcher knife, cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds.
3. Place cut-side down in a baking dish and fill with water 1 inch deep.
4. Bake between 40 minutes to 1 hour. The skin should appear wrinkly and will be soft when pierced with a fork.
5. Scrape the pumpkin flesh from the skin.
6. For babies' starting solids, mash with a fork or puree with a food processor or mixer. For older babies, cube into chunks appropriate for finger feeding.
7. If a smoother texture is desired, add water from the baking pan. This will add more nutrients and flavor.
8. If desired, introduce your baby to spice by adding a small dash of cinnamon.
