So , in the spirit of generosity, my sister delivered a marrow. Not just ANY marrow , this one stands a good two feet above me. I need to cook this bugger quickly before it mugs me. Does anyone have and delicious marrow recipes? Does such a thing exist ?
All help gratefully appreciated smile

Marrows are horrible things. Make great compost though!

I love a bit of marrow.

As Veganbody says, cut into 2 inch rounds and cut out the soft middle part. I stuff the rounds with Bolognese sauce and top with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Then bake in the oven for 30 minutes or so.

And any left over marrow could be made into chutney or pickle.

Why does it terrify you - what are you planning on doing with it? shockwink

moussaka: just use slices of marrow instead of aubergine.

Thanks VeganBody and MrsHR, shall face the beast with renewed vigor!

Kekouan - Its not what i'm planing on doing with it, its what whispers... its what its planning to do to the family!*

TrinityRhino-Granted, I maaaaay be exaggerating, but suffice to say, it would win a horticultural competition, whereas I am firmly in the cetergory marked WEED, and a pathetically short one at that.....

My Mum used to peel, then halve the marrow lengthways, take out the soft middle/seeds and stuff with a 50/50 mixture of pork sausagemeat and sage and onion stuffing mix. Then wrap in tin foil and bake in a bain marie.

It sounds awful, but it is delicious!

Firstly name your marrow ... mine are always Steves... Steve I, Steve II
Makes them less scary and is fun!

Secondly, cut into 4 inch ish rounds, hollowed out... put into a tray and bake for a bit until softish, then fill with bolognese, and put a wacking great tomato slice on top of each one... cook for a while (apologies for vague recipe details!!) pop onto a plate and smother with a lovely cheese sauce .. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Steve n Cheez!

Midori - That sounds like a recipe the will appeal to my OH, he has a distinct and suspicious weakness for sausage..!
Titchy - Funnily enough, I am predisposed to naming things...anything really. Aubergines of a certain size are Helga, Ethel or Gertrude! I wonder if there's a market for humanized fruit and veg ?
