  2. 2. www.iankenworthy.com Pumpkin Soup 2 2) To begin with the fun part! Preparing your pumpkin. Firstly, being extremely careful, take your sharp knife and slice the top from the pumpkin. 3) Using a spoon scoop out the seeds and discard. You won’t be needing them for this recipe. That won’t stop you using them for something else though. 4) Okay, now you need to scoop out all the fleshy stuff. That’s the part of the pumpkin we need for our soup. Try to be careful, you don’t want to tear the orange outer part. This worksheet is based upon The Whispering Sand by Ian Kenworthy.

  3. 3. www.iankenworthy.com Pumpkin Soup 2 5) Right, put the pumpkin aside for the moment, but don’t worry we’ll be using it again soon. Now we need that sharp knife again. Peel the onion and chop it up into nice small pieces. 6) Add a little oil to your frying pan and cook the oil for a few minutes until it all starts to brown. 7) Again with the sharp knife, chop up the bacon and add it to the onion. Stir the two until the bacon goes from pink and sticky to being firm. It’ll go whitish to start before getting darker and darker. When it starts going this colour it’ll do. Don’t worry if you’re not sure, we’ll be cooking it a little more shortly. Turn the heat down so that it doesn’t burn whilst we do the next part.

  4. 4. Pumpkin Soupwww.iankenworthy.com 2 8) Now, get hold of the fleshy bit we scooped out of the pumpkin earlier. Using that big knife again, very carefully chop the flesh into small pieces. Then add those to our pan. Stir them around for a minute or so over the low heat. 9) Using boiling water (Please be careful with that too) make up a half pint of stock. Use a measuring jug to get the right amount. Then tip it into the pan with the other ingredients. 10) Turn the heat back up until the concoction begins to simmer. Then add the teaspoon of nutmeg and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Add a little salt too. You might need to taste it to see how much. It’ll be REALLY hot so don’t forget to blow on it!

  5. 5. Pumpkin Soupwww.iankenworthy.com 2 11) Simmer the soup for ten minutes. It should smell lovely! Try not to have it too hot or all the water will boil away. If this happens and it’s starting to get a bit dry carefully add a little more. 12) Okay, so that’s the cooking part done. The final part is to turn our lumpy broth into soup. So it’s time for the food mixer. Make sure your responsible adult attaches the chopping blade. Select a suitable speed and then whizz away. Try not to do it too fast or it’ll slop right up the walls! And if you’re doing it whilst the soup is still hot then it might scald you too. You’ve been warned! This worksheet is based upon The Whispering Sand by Ian Kenworthy.
