Marrow

My auntie has just delivered one to my door along with some other bits. I've never had it before and don't know what to do with it. 
Does anyone have any recipes/ideas at all please? x

Bury it in the garden for two weeks. Then forget where you buried it.

If you msut eat it, a lady my mum knows makes marrow chutney which is not as nasty as it sounds (I realise that that isn't a resounding recommendation!). I can find the recipe for you if you like.

My Nan and sis usually stuff it. Onion  and tomato usually feature heavily I think. Personally I agree with BFG.

My Nan used to stuff them as well, I'm sure it was a mince or sausage meat mixture.
Can't remember ever eating it since I must've been about 6...lol

Yum! Love marrow.  Scoop out the seeds and then roast.  Or stuff with mince mixture and roast.

Yup I second the mince mixture,  usually make a bolognaise sauce with less tomato sauce and scoop out the seeds, stuff it, wrap it in foil, season it with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake it for a good hour. My word I'm drooling just typing that.

While I adore courgette, I hate marrow... and it's the same thing, just overgrown... (ok and slightly different varieties...)

Funny - we had stuffed (overgrown) courgette yesterday for the first time in years and it was lush! Used a bolognese recipe

I just steam it, and Oh covers it with pepper.
