Weighing in at.....

The marrows in our new section have been producing for about 2 weeks now. I harvest them small now except for one which I allow to grow until I am inspired to make something with it.

Today for lunch I did not feel like the normal wholewheat bread we make so I tried Delicious Jane's marrow bread recipe. It was so simple to make but again, I had to use what I had to replace some of her ingredients.

I grated half of the monster and mixed it with 2 beaten eggs and 1/3 cup olive oil. Added 2 cups grated mozarella.

Add to that 600g stone ground cake flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt.

Mix together and put in two greased loaf tins. Sprinkle with any seeds you have - we used Golden Linseed. She says to use sunflower seeds.

Bake at 180 deg C for about 1.5 hrs.

To save on electricity, while these were baking my Princess made the most delicious brownies.

That bread looks beautiful. Im so impressed with your marrow. Mine did not produce one fruit this year. They flower and the marrows start forming but then they turn yellow to bright orange. I Do not know what I am doing wrong.

That sounds like a pollination issue. You may need to go out early in the morning and pollinate them yourself. Do you know how to do that? If not I can tell you.
