    Default Pickled Marrow

    hi everyone
    how are you all on this cold wet morning?
    i found this recipe for pickled marrow while trawling through the internet. it sounds scrummy so i thought i would share it with you all:

    Ingredients:

    4 lb marrow flesh
    2 medium onions
    2 tbsp salt
    2 pints malt vinegar
    8 oz sugar
    1 oz powdered ginger
    1 oz powdered mustard
    0.5 oz powdered turmeric
    2-3 dried hot chillies
    6 whole cloves
    Method:

    Skin, de-seed and chop marrow into roughly quarter inch cubes. Chop the

    onion finer and add to the marrow. Add salt and mix well. Place in a

    colander, standing in a bowl. Put a plate and a heavy weight on top. Leave

    to drain for 8 - 24 hours. Discard the water that collects in in the bowl.

    Heat vinegar, sugar and spices in a large saucepan and add the marrow.

    Simmer until tender, (usually 20 - 30 minutes). Whilst hot, seal in

    sterilised, hot jars. Delicious with cold meats and cheese

    sounds good might give it a go-any idea how long it keeps?
