Recipe for Marrow Jam.


Marrow Jam


Qty Description Qty Description
4 lb prepared marrow juice of 2 lemons
3 lb granulated sugar rind of lemon
ginger to taste


Peel marrow and remove seeds. Cut into small cubes.

Place in a colander over a pan of boiling water and steam until tender.

Drain well, place in a bowl, cover with the sugar, add lemon juice and peel cut into thin strips.

Leave overnight.

Next day add the crushed root ginger tied in muslin or 4 oz preserved ginger chopped finely and transfer to a pan.

Cook slowly until the marrow looks transparent and the syrup is thick. This may take upwards of 30 minutes.

Remove root ginger, if using, and lemon peel. Pot and cover.

This does not keep well as it is inclined to go rather crystalline. However, it is a nice change from the red jams and doubles as an accompaniment to ham or gammon steaks
