Dean & DeLuca today, at $2 lb. I resisted because I'm dieting, but I was very tempted.

Dean & DeLuca today, at $2 lb.  I resisted because I'm dieting, but I was very tempted.

is marrow fattening?

edit: i found this via random google

Bone marrow has fallen out of favor as a food, commonly now being used only as a flavoring for soup. Bone marrow is a source of protein and high in monounsaturated fats . These fats are known to decrease LDL  cholesterol  levels. Some believe this results in a reduced risk of coronary heart disease, prompting them to make bone marrow a dietary  staple . The lack of heart disease and obesity in the hominid ancestors of humans has been credited to their regular consumption of bone marrow. It has also been credited to the fact that they were physically active and died at a young age of other causes. The actual health effects of the addition of bone marrow to the diet is unknown.

It's my understanding that the marrow has the same number of calories as the fat. Anything that luscious has to be packed with calories.

But they're good calories! :unsure:

When you find special bones at a good price, the calorie count is negotiable. Bones tonight; salad tomorrow. No?

I should have gotten them, I guess. I don't have a cholesterol check for another month. Maybe I'll try to swing by tomorrow, unless another MF-er has already cleaned out the supply.

But, do I remember correctly, Voyager, that you have a set of marrow spoons? I don't.

Buy enough for the two of us as well, and I'll bring mine. :unsure:

Why worry? The classic parsley salad that often accompanies them will take care of anything bad.

marrow spoons?

No, I have one, enough for my household, but not for guests. What about lobster forks, or fondue forks, for that matter? Wouldn't any of these do? Besides, I have never been served special forks in French bistrots. Knife, fork, that's all, and that's been enough. Enjoy! It's a situation of 'where there's a will, there's a way'. Or if you are planning to serve guests, ask them to bring their own! :unsure:

I'm with Suzanne: parsley salad tonight, oatmeal tomorrow!

lippy, what scarce information there is online suggests that marrow may be good for your cholesterol count. it is apparently all unsaturated fat, which will raise hdl/reduce ldl.

Oh, just suck it out. :unsure: Go for it!

Way to go! Wish I were there! Did I post the SF Chronicle food section article on Bones? If not, let me know and I'll post it by 10am your time. ;)
