This supersized courgette was posing a bit of a problem as to how to deal with it. While following the further adventures of Bilbo since he left Cork, I found he was going to nipitinthebud in Gloucester in the UK.While checking out the blog, I came across an intriguing recipe for Marrow Cream.It was made in Bavaria and is posted under Cedric's Jam and cream I am not sure if it is a jam or curd but cream does not describe my one! I made 2 pots last night using the recipe but it only used half of the marrow so today I made two more pots and had enough to fill a pie also.The marrow yielded 4 lbs of flesh after peeling and scooping out the seeds in the centre. The two outside pots are today's which are of a creamier colour than the other two.The taste is reminiscent of lemon Meringue Pie so I made one just to try it out
I baked a blind pie crust and used some of the marrow cream as the pie filling. I would have to say I find it very sweet.
The finished Marrow Meringue Pie!It tastes delicious,very sweet but with a lemony flavour too,so I would not use too much of the filling. It could also be used by placing some of it on a pastry base and covering with a sponge mixture.It will be useful to have a ready pie filling to hand for the winter.
Nipitinthebud has left a comment about the sugar quantity! Just used half of the sugar and it is sweet enough!
