  1. Drain the grated marrow slightly and fry in the oil or lard, with the onions.
  2. Sprinkle with the paprika, marjoram and a little salt.
  3. When the onions are half-cooked, add the stock and simmer until the marrow has 'melted' into the liquid.
  4. Add the walnuts, vinegar and cream and reheat without boiling.
  5. Serve sprinkled with extra paprika and chopped parsley.


Use any edible vegetable of the marrow family such as courgettes, squash etc - whatever is available.

Add Crushed garlic and/or caraway seeds if liked.

I added a few chopped celery hearts instead of the parsley.
