After receiving such lovely gifts, I needed to get into my kitchen. I found a recipe for onion marmalade in my new book and made it from my meagre onion harvest.I knew I wanted to use my onions for something a little different and not just in my normal cooking. It was just enough to enjoy with our burgers that evening.
With the huge marrow my friend gave me, I made some delicious healthy marrow muffins. Even my little guy wolfed those down! You can find the recipe on her her blog here: http://its-our-life-for-six.blogspot.com/2010/12/more-marrow-munchies.html. As I didn't have wheat germ or nuts, I substituted them with sunflower seeds and oat bran and bran. They were so good I have subsequently made another batch.
