I'm a great fan of the much maligned marrow - but have never tried it raw in a smoothie. I like the chilli!

I am afraid I do not know what marrow is. could you explain please? It sounds like something having to do with some sort of meat, AKA bone marrow. I am hoping I am wrong about this! It does not sound very good in a smoothie actually, but hey if it works for you..!:bravo::D

It's a plant, of the same family as pumpkin, that's grown in colder climates than those required for the pumpkin. Like the pumpkin they can be grown for their weight and or size. Looks a lot like a pumpkin though. Found a recipe, or two, for Bone Marrow Smoothies.
