In the US, I believe we call them "squash". But, how could I tell, if I don't know what A marrow is in the first place!!lol

Stuffed Marrows with Curried Mushrooms
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

2 marrows, weighing 675g each
2 bayleaves
450g mushrooms
60ml olive oil
1 large onion finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
10ml hot curry paste
10ml fenugreek seeds
5ml ground turmeric
125g granary or wholemeal breadcrumbs
45ml chopped parsley
150ml stock
oil for basting

Instructions

1. Cut tops off the marrows, de-seed and peel them. Put a bayleaf inside each one. Steam the marrows and caps. Drain them well.

2. Preheat oven to 200C (400F, gas 6). Finely chop the mushrooms, heat oil in a pan, stir in the onion, garlic, curry powder, fenugreek seeds and turmeric and cook until onion is soft. Raise the heat and add the mushrooms. Cook for 1 minute, stirring, pour in the stock and bring to the boil.

3. Take the pan off the heat and stir in breadcrumbs and parsley. Put the pan back on the heat and stir until breadcrumbs are thoroughly moistened .

4. Take off the heat and cool a little. Press into the marrow and press a cocktail stick into the tops. Brush with oil and place in a roasting tin, bake for 30 minutes

I like that recipe for stuffed marrows. My mum used to make one with an italian meat stuffing similar to bolognaise. It used to be my favourite of hers, but I was the only one in the family who liked it. And she tried it with a middle eastern inspired lamb mince, with cumin, coriander and pine nuts. YUM!

I'm so confused!!!!

Would Marrows (which I think of as the inside of bones as in veal shanks - yum) be acorn squash? Zucchinni? Crookneck? Hubbard? We have so many different kinds of squash! Of course I love them all!

Acorn squash, though, I just steam and eat with brown sugar and butter & a little salt.....others are better for savory stuff and for stuffing!

They are like enormous zucchini. In fact if you don't pick your zucchini early enough, they turn into something that resembles a marrow.

Pumpkins are fantastic! I have no idea why they are so unpopular in Britian.

Pumpkin, coriander and coconut soup.
Pumpkin, pancetta pasta salad
Pumpkin pie
Pumkin and amaretti ravioli
Pumpkin ice cream
Pumpkin lasagne


There are more reasons to love pumpkin, but I'll leave it there for now!!!

Oh and pumpkin and prune syrup cake, had to add that one

I'll post some recipes some time soon............they taste entirely different to marrow, sort of sweet, more flavour than a marrow. But not the evil ones you buy at Halloween, the green skinned ones or butternut squash (we call them pumpkin in Australia) are the best ones for cooking. The bright orange ones are ok roasted though, yum!
