Baby marrow chips

Postby Ice.Maiden » 07 Nov 2014, 19:09

These're really lovely, even if you don't care for marrow in the usual way.

1) Use a peeler to slice the marrows into strips
2) Lightly toss in Olive Oil (and I mean lightly)
3) Lay out on a baking tray
4) Grind some sea salt over the top
5) Bake in a preheated 200 degree oven for 5 to 10 minutes

Thank you, that sounds like delicious option...
I made some roast spuds earlier and chucked s whole garlic in with them , truly scrumptious!
That marrow thing sounds good..so it's just strips and not like chips?

No - you DO chip them T, but you can also cut them into thin strips instead if you want to. I've made them, and they're beautiful. You could add garlic to them as well.

Parsnips fried in butter're glorious, but I've always par-boiled mine first. Groan ... think of the calories .....

Yes they are, because they contain no fat or cholesterol. They contain fibre, calcium, vitamins and antioxidants - but if you fry them, that changes things somewhat!

Perfect, although unfortunately, my favourite way of cooking them's as chips .... fried ones.

Strangely enough, our range's fan- assisted and chips take about the same time to cook as in the conventional way.

If you oven cook marrows, I seriously think it's best to par boil them first, and then after a few minutes, transfer them to a baking tray.

I'm not saying it's a wrong way to do them, but if you bake them your way, they can get burnt or hard on the edges.

I don't think so! I have good teeth, but marrow chips aren't supposed to be leathery or burnt.
