Well, not really, but close. Its name is the Kabocha Squash and it looks like a small pumpkin - in the winter squash family.
It can be served - cooked - to babies once they are 6 months old.
I knew Noah would like this (and not be allergic) since we have had such a variety of other winter squashes that he loved.
The preparation of the Kabocha Squash is just like that of all of our other winter squashes that we have
First, cut the squash open lengthwise and scoop and the seeds and strings.
Cut into 1 inch squares and steam for 25 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool.
Once cool, scoop out the flesh and puree.
Once pureed, fill up your ice cube trays and freeze.
Kabocha squash will keep in the freezer for 2 months.
And he truly did love it!
