Spanish Rice Stuffed Marrow

Spanish Rice Stuffed Marrow

I don’t think I’d ever eaten a marrow before until now.   It’s one of those vegetables that everyone has heard of but you just don’t see for sale anywhere, or at least not in supermarkets these days.   I imagine it was different in the past.   Marrows were probably one of those vegetables people lived off.   Also, why pick them as courgettes when you could wait a couple of weeks and have 6 times the amount of food?  Maybe that’s why they have somehow fallen out of favour in recent years.

The only reason I ended up with this marrow was that I was looking for courgettes to pick at Garsons pick-your-own but it seemed everyone else had got there first.   There were almost no courgettes but quite a lot of marrows.   It seems that even when you can pick them yourself they suffer in the popularity stakes.  I decided I should get one to try, but I have to admit to keeping it in the fridge for almost a week before I could decide what to do with it.
