Veal Bones in Orange County
I've called a few butchers in OC, and I have had no luck finding veal bones, any ideas in OC or Long Beach?
An important quest, given the price of veal these days. Good meaty bones for soup or stock are hard to find, unless you have a time machine for a quick trip to the Sixties. (Some butchers will save them for you, however.)
If you don't get what you want in OC, try Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad. I don't get down to that place very often, but they had veal bones when I found leaf lard there sometime back.

I actually had the same dilemma until someone recommended the Bristol Farms in Newport Beach off Avocado. They almost always have veal knuckles available, which are great if you are specifically looking to make veal stock.
On another note, I'm currently on my own quest to find a butcher that will sell me sweetbreads, cheeks and various other offal cuts, to no avail. Not to hijack this thread, but if anyone knows of a butcher (I'm willing to drive outside of the Orange curtain) that might have these items, it would be appreciated.
