put it in the compost heap? About the best thing you can do with a marrow wink

marrow jam is supposed to be really good.

marrow jam! <shudders>

dh is starting a diet, can i not just roast it, and plop the whole thing on his plate as a gourmet, vegetarian, low fat, tea??

Stuff it and roast it. Can either cut it in half lengthwise or do rings. Chop it into inch chunks and cook with tin of tomatoes, onions etc.

Mind you I have had one for a week now and still failed to do that so just bunged 1/3 of it in the juicer with a load of carrots and ginger. Couldn't taste it but stretched the juice out.

actually stuff with mice, onions, peppers (sort of like a bolagnaise) and bake in the oven - it's lovely I promise!

Is that free range mice? wink

Cut in to thinnish rounds, fry in olive oil then put tomato sauce and cheese on top and bake- voila, marrow au gratin!
Also make a nice souffle with ricotta or goats cheese, have recipes if you can be arsed.
Finally, marrow cake...take a carrot cake recipe and replace grated carrot with grated marrow. Might make the batter a bit wetter because more watery than carrot but just add less egg or cook for longer.
Marrows are much maligned but very versatile
