    Courgettes are a classic late summer and autumn vegetable that grows readily in Ireland. If you grow your own vegetables and have grown a marrow by accident (a very large courgette), you can make beautiful marrow marmalade from them. Trust me, it’s delicious.

    Method

    • Cut up the marrow into large cubes, cut the ginger into thin slices, and coarsely grate the lemon zest.
    • Add everything into a blender and blend for 3 seconds or just long enough to break up the marrow.
    • Add the mixture along with the sugar and juice of the lemon into a deep pan, bring to the boil while stirring to mix everything evenly.
    • Once it’s boiling, cover with a lid and reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Have some jam jars ready to spoon the marmalade in once it’s cooked. Store in the fridge or on the shelf.

    Tip: You can easily sterilise jam jars by running them on a hot wash in the dishwasher, or by briefly dipping them into boiling water. Leave the cool on a clean cloth.
