The children were enthusiastic and enjoyed learning how to prepare the pumpkin as well as seeing all the seeds inside. Under the watchful eyes of our wonderful ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ Team – Mrs Spice and Mrs Tyrrell – the children followed a recipe to make pumpkin soup. They were all able to taste their soup which they thoroughly enjoyed.
The team then went on to use some of the pumpkins to make pumpkin pie. This included making shortcrust pastry and then combining ingredients to make a filling. When the pumpkin pies had baked in the oven the children were once again able to taste what they had made. It is fantastic for our pupils to plant seeds, to watch them grow and to then enjoy harvesting and making with our own produce. They were then able to take home copies of the recipes they had prepared and tasted.
