What is Bone marrow

Bone Marrow is the spongy soft tissue found in the interior of bones. Bone marrow from grass-fed animals tastes better and has better nutritional values.  The Bone marrow is considered a delicacy served with toasted bread, cracker, and steamed vegetables for those who want full health effects and benefits.

How to cook bone marrow

Bone marrow is very easy to cook; just 20 minutes in the oven at 450 Degrees F, and you’re done. Although this particular way is quite enjoyable by many, I find it too fatty and too delicious to eat. The best way for me to enjoy it is in soup. Many people may not bake the bone marrow before adding it to soup, but I do. The roasted taste of the marrow adds flavor to the broth.

(Just a cultural habit/thing) The broth for the soup is made by cooking all the ingredients together and adding the bones last as the final flavoring step.

If you are a meat-eater, you might enjoy this recipe. This has no meat, just a taste of meat. And if you are a vegetarian, you are more than welcome to make the soup without the bone marrow.
