Stuffed Marrow

Fruit and Vegetables

Vegetable marrow, partly hollowed out and stuffed with a savoury mixture, eg. pork sausage-meat. Baked.

Known in England at least since the proceedings of the International Vegetarian Congress in London in 1890, where it was also reported that; "vegetarianism in America has utterly and ignominiously failed".

Original Receipt from 'Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald' - Saturday 19 September 1891

VEGETABLE MARROW. By now, probably, most of my readers are sated with this vegetable, and would be glad to find a fresh way cooking it. So I hope, says "lsabel,'' in Pearson's Weekly, they will appreciate these recipes.

Stewed Stuffed Marrow.—Take good-sized marrow and boil toll tender, peel and cut off about two inches one end, to give room to remove the seeds and fibre. Make a stuffing of minced meat, chopped onions, one ounce of butter, pepper and salt, and with it fill up the cavity made by the seeds; brush over the end with white of egg, and put on the piece that was cut off. Run a nice long skewer through it all. Stew in thick brown gravy for half hour, and serve with gravy poured over.

Vegetable Marrow Scallop.—Boil a vegetable marrow till tender, peel, cut half lengthwise, and remove the seeds and fibre. Lay the pieces of marrow carefully on a baking-tin. Take some minced fowl, or veal, ham, breadcrumbs, chopped lemon; a little mace, pepper and salt, all worked together with a little butter, and, if you have it, the yolk of an egg. Fill each case even with the top. Cover with breadcrumbs, a little butter, and grated cheese, and bake for half an hour in a sharp oven, basting well. Serve very hot with a little gravy.
