My arteries are clogging just thinking about the fat and cholesterol in bone marrow - BUT, it is a delicacy that you pay big bucks for in high-end restaurants.
When raw, the marrow looks almost like part of the bone. It's off-white and hard with a slightly spongy texture. Once it's cooked, it becomes soft and rich, melts easily and tastes almost like butter, with a sweet, nutty flavor and a lighter, more delicate texture.
Total Fat Content. One tablespoon of beef bone marrowcontains about 13.5 grams of total fat. If you're considering adding it to your diet, keep in mind that you should limit your total daily fat intake to between 20 and 35 percent of your calories, or about 44 to 77 grams of fat on a 2,000-calorie diet.
Back in the day, people were ignorant to the harm of too much cholesterol and cigarette smoke.
My grandfather both smoked unfiltered cigarettes and enjoyed bone marrow. He died at age 65
from a stroke attributed to clogged arteries.
Ha, ha, thanks but I was kidding. I get thoroughly checked once a year and apparently am in great health for the health I'm in. Organs good, joints not so much. Just saw the doc today in fact. Besides, I drink enough red wine to take care of any cholesterol. No heart disease in the family but the liver.....well, that's another story. lol.
