GEORGIAN PERIOD SILVER MARROW SCOOPS & SPOONS
Spoons & Scoops
Pictured above is a selection
from our Georgian silver marrow spoons and marrow scoops.
Additional selections will
soon be available.
Roasted bone marrow was
considered a great delicacy in the Queen Anne period (1702-1714) ,
meat was quite expensive.
To accommodate the
extraction of the marrow from the bone centers, silver spoons with a
long narrow scoop
at one end were used, the
earliest on record c1690. These marrow spoons were quickly superseded
scoops, which had a large
scoop at one end, and small scoop at the other - suitable to
differing widths of bone.
Scoops were made only until
the late 19th century.
Roasted bone marrow has once
more become a dish of great fashion. Across American, it graces
the menus not only of metropolitan top restaurants, but pubs and
home-cooking establishments. Recipes abound on the internet - take
"Bon Appetit" lists a
wonderful recipe with image, describing which bones to select from the
There is also a resurgence of
interest with pot au feu, a main course dish using beef shanks,
and marrow bones - the marrow bones
being passed at the table with warm bread.
If you wish a copy of the pot au
feu recipe, please email me.
(Those of us in the Southern
United States can also employ marrow scoops in the
enjoyment of the center of
pork-chop bones, which we so love).

Simple Recipe for Roasted Marrow
very simple recipe was sent to me for roasting marrow bones :
bones at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Assuming they are cut
crossways, place them upright on the pan.
Set them on a portion of
biscuit dough - enough to cover the base. The dough serves to keep the
melted fat from running out, and does absorb some of the fat, making the
biscuit extra delicious. You can use your own biscuit recipe, or
Pillsbury is just fine.
Salt and pepper to taste.
I enjoy a light
sprinkle of garlic powder.
