Fantastic, I thought my Uncle Moore's Parsnip Wine was the last word in garden recycling, this tops it hands down........cant wait to hear what it tastes like!


Another brilliant post.
I found some mushrooms in my garden recently, lepiotas. Nice to find ceps!

This just goes to show we are all still learning out there. I, too, had never heard of Marrow Rum. It will be interesting hear what the results are like on the day and, especially, the day after!


Love the sound of this! Have a ton of marrow & still people keep giving me more. Intend trying this for xmas presents for those people who have 'kindly' forced marrow gifts upon me! (even if it's not ready by xmas) Great blog too!


I have to say that, after reading this post from over here in the States, my first thought was that you Brits have been on that island, interbreeding, just a little too long. But then I remembered that I myself had written about making wine out of dandelions, a process that's remarkably similar. It's just that the involvement of rustic farmers and the use of tights make is sound so ... so ... so bumpkin.

That said, I'll never look at one of those overgrown zucchinis in quite the same way.

PS - Nice cep!


Found a whole load of B.edulis and B.badius around Ashdown Forest over the last couple of weekends. Now all dried ready for risotto over the winter

great great post nick - when are we going to see you in a weekend magazine - a column please!


hi there, my 1st year for marrrow rum already at the airlock stage just waiting to bottle it around march time, but ive heard your only to drink a cherry glass full or the night will turn paer shaped. sounds good to me. im also making elderberry wine, cherry wine and black berry wine and i cant wait to drink them next year


I saw your book in Waterstones in Salisbury :) Also I'm impressed with the Meadowsweet detail - I have a huge patch of it spread across a small neglected meadow I'm slowly restoring.
Next summer I think I'm going to have a lot of interesting home brew... Cheers :)

Hi, we had quite a few large marrows in our veg patch this year, and as we do not like wastage we have decided to convert them into marrow rum. I had heard about marrow rum in the past and also melon rum too. Looking on the internet your page came up on the subject, and we now have two marrows busily dripping away with a further two ready to make some more once these first two have given up their contents. We are certainly looking forward to tasting the end result and we will let you know of the outcome. Many thanks for your recipe.

Ijust finished a 40-page ebook on "how to sell wine online" which focuses a good deal on SEO, but also expands into a lot more broader inbound marketing strategies. Keep an eye out for it, or ask and I'll send you a copy.

I've been browsing online greater than three hours as of late, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.


Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
