This is a traditional British dish and appears in every country kitchen as one of the autumn feasts. However, if marrows or squash get too large, they become tasteless and fibrous. Do not eat them after they have grown more than 30 cm/12 inches long; at this length, they can be satisfactorily stuffed. As marrows/squash contain a lot of water which they lose during cooking, it is important to stuff them with uncooked rice, which will absorb the water; breadcrumbs simply become soggy.
