1 Seminole pumpkin or any winter squash

Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds and stringy pulp.
Place the cleaned halves cut side down in a large roasting pan.
Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan.
Place in a 350 degree oven.
Test with a fork after 45 minutes—the fork should easily
pierce the flesh all the way to the center.
When the pumpkin is cooked, it is ready to eat with a spoon, without adding anything else!
Babies love the texture and taste— little cubes make wonderful finger food.
The following optional toppings will add a variety of flavors—
     Warm Persimmon Sauce (Nov. 2007)
     Maple syrup and walnuts
     Orange juice and zest
     Honey, lime juice and a dash of cayenne
     Warm applesauce and cinnamon
