  • Preheat your oven to 450F degrees.
  • Place raw marrow bones on a baking sheet lined with foil (for easy clean up). Sprinkle each bone with a pinch of coarse sea salt.
  • Roast bones for about 20-25 minutes. The marrow should be soft all the way through, with a little marrow leaking out in the bottom of the pan.
  • Insert a skewer or small knife in the middle - it should go through very easily, like warm butter.
  • Remove and let them sit for about 5 minutes or until cool enough to touch.
  • Scoop out with a small knife and spread on toasted bread. Sprinkle with a little more sea salt (to taste) and serve.


  1. This recipe can be easily doubled, tripled, or made to accommodate any number of people. Just use a larger pan and roast using the same instructions.
  2. Soaking the marrow bones helps to remove blood and impurities from the bones. You can technically skip this part, but I think it makes the bones better.
  3. The marrow should be hot and ultra tender in the center - a knife should go right through it like warm butter.
  4. Marrow bones can be frozen for up to 6 months before roasting. 
  5. You can also freeze bone marrow out of the bone after it is cooked. Just store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and warm.
