MSP: source of "organic" turkey wings?

Lynne R-K has a recipe for a broth made with turkey wings that sounds like just the thing for the cold season. She recommends organic turkey wings--anyone know where I can obtain some?

  1. I would try the meat department at one of the local co-ops. We've been happy with the Wedge in the past, and the new Seward co-op has a very accommodating meat counter (they cut our lamb for rogan josh while we waited the other week). It wouldn't hurt to call ahead to make sure they have some on hand.

      That's a good idea (calling ahead). I'll look up the number for the Wedge and Seward.

      I don't shop co-ops generally for meat, so I haven't paid enough attention to which ones even have a meat counter--any other recommendations from y'all?

      Has anyone seen organic turkey wings at Trader Joe's (SLP or MG)? At Whole Foods?

      Any butchers that would be a good bet to try?

        Clancy's in Linden Hills. They have all the good stuff.

          I bought organic turkey wings at Whole Foods last Thanksgiving, along with some organic innards to make turkey gravy. (It was for a turkey that was soaked in brine so we thought the turkey roasting juices might be too salty for making gravy.) At the time, I asked the Whole Foods butcher if they carry the organic wings separately at other times of the year. The answer was no. That I could get whole organic turkeys but not organic wings separately. I'm not sure if that's still true, but that's what they said then.

            Probably worth a call to them, just to check it out...Thanks for the info.

      2. I saw some frozen ones at Seward a few weeks back.
