Having fun making marrow, potato and sage soup

by Mars

With storm Ellen keeping us indoors today, we made marrow, potato and sage soup. We had some fun doing it and recorded it in this Instagram video. Enjoy.

The first time I ever heard of marrow was through Hercules Poirot! And I had no idea what it was. This is the first time I’ve seen a photo!

It looks like a summer squash? Like zucchini? (courgette)

The power of Agatha Christie. 😀

Yes, it resembles courgette in shape and has the same growing pattern.

The skin is a lot thicker though (similar to butternut in thickness) and needs to be removed. In terms of taste, it’s a bit watery and light, and works really well as a side veg for roasts in the UK. I think it also worked out quite well in our soup.

I assume it’s not popular in Canada.

I want the video making the bread rolls, they look fantastic 🙂

Thanks Eddy. I won’t lie, the bread rolls are pretty good, and not that difficult to make either. The next time we make a batch, we’ll film it.

As an aside, do you grow your own wheat?

We have grown it in the past, but our land isn’t well suited. However we are part of a well connected group and we are able to source organic grains. We often use a spelt flour and buckwheat, the latter as a whole grain.

That sounds delicious!
I made potato soup this week too with a mix of sweet and normal potato. Added cummin. Next time I will try the sage 😊
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the feedback and comment Sal. Cummin is a nice addition, and I can see that adding an interesting taste profile to the potato soup. I think I’ll add some next time. Thanks for the suggestion.
