Cooking marrow at home?

Dagney Jan 26, 2010 07:36 PM

Has anyone done this? We had marrow for the first time about one month ago, and we simply must have more!

Any recommendations on cooking temperatures and/or times?

Thank you in advance Chowhounds.

    This is pretty comprehensive and I couldn't assemble anything that would be better to follow:

      That's quite comprehensively easy and tasty.

        Yes, his recipe seems to be the benchmark for roasted marrow bones. The only thing I'll add is to place each bone upright on rounds of crusty bread. The bread becomes slightly toasted and any escaping marrow sinks into the bread so you don't lose any deliciousness. Remember, don't over cook...

          The bread on the bottom trick worked great for me. I think I did them at a much lower temp but now am doubting myself. That high a temp for that long seems a bit much but I may be having a senior moment. But just keep an eye on them.

        We boil our marrow bones for 1 minute, then freeze them. Our lovely Samoyed enjoys them
        immensely. For people, you all can roast and boast at will--but I leave them in their more pristine state to my white wolf...My wife and I laugh at the lengths humans go to fetishize this item...

          I've never heard about this fetish. Could you explain it more please? I eat it because it's so insanely delicious :) BTW, to my knowledge Samoyeds aren't even remotely related to wolves, but I could be wrong.

            a fetish for marrow?
            craving maybe, but fetish?

              My dogs will never get my marrow. Bones yes, marrow no.

              Do check out Jennifer McLagan's book Bones. It won a bunch of prizes so you might find it in the library. Also her subsequent book Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient has a marrow bone recipe with lots of detail in it. I guess she couldn't get enough either! It's in all the book shops b/c it won a James Beard award last year. Even if you don't buy it you could stand there and read it.
