Marrow Matters - Marvelous Marinated Marrows

Another Thursday, another marrow recipe - my favourite one so far.


Take 5-8 baby marrows. Wash them well.

 Slice them lengthways into long strips. Coat them with olive oil and roast them in a hot oven (200'C) until they are tender, stirring every now and then.

While the marrows are softening in the oven, crush a clove of garlic into a casserole dish. Add a handful of freshly chopped mint leaves.

 Heat half a cup of vinegar until bubbling merrily.

Toss the softly roasted courgettes with the hot vinegar, garlic and mint in the casserole dish. Grind salt and pepper over the dish.

Cover and refrigerate overnight to mellow the flavours. 
Voila, an absolutely delicious accompaniment to any meal that is perfect for a hot Summer's day. 

Now to think of some ideas for the rest of the marrows that grew enormous while we were away.
