Twin Cities - Where to find veal bones?
Does anyone know where to find veal bones in the Twin Cities area for stock-making purposes? I tried all the higher-end grocery stores as well as Von Hansons and apparently none of them cut their own meat (i.e. no leftover bones).
lunds/byerl's just stopped cutting their own meat, it's now centralized for all the stores. i feel bad for our reg guys, they say they don't know what to do with their time. . .
my suggestions for the op would be to try mike's in st paul, or ready meats or everett's in mpls, hackenmueller's in robbinsdale
Mike's Butcher Shop
1104 Robert St S, West St Paul, MN 55118
3550 Johnson St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418
1833 E 38th St, Minneapolis, MN
I also called Mike's butcher shop. They don't have bones. Haven't tried Everett's yet, but as I noted below, Ready Meats does have frozen bones, which I believe will work pretty well for stock making purposes.
I spoke with Von Hansen's, and they have bones that they'd be happy to sell you...for $4.99 a pound. No thanks.
I just got off the phone with Ready Meats on NE Johnson St. They have frozen bones for $2.98 a pound.
