Bone Marrow in Boston

Hi All -
We're looking for a butcher, or store, to buy Bone Marrow

Perhaps more accurately, Bones with Marrow.

You know, cook (bake?) the bone on our own, at home, which we've never done, but would love to try.

Thoughts on sources, recipes, and even more would be greatly appreciated!
We're in proverbial Metro West.

Do you suppose Blood Farm in Groton Ma. might be able to supply us?
Any local sources for goodness in the bone?

  1. Try calling the Butcher Shop on Tremont. Can't go wrong with simply roasting the bones and sprinkling with some sea salt and lemon zest.

    1. I've seen them at Roche bros, and I've always wondered if they would/could cut them lengthwise, or into smaller round segments for roasting purposes.

      1. re: nsenada

        Whole foods in the symphony has them from time to time in the freezer section by the meat department: you can also ask them to get it for you.

      2. In proverbial Metro West, I would give John Dewar a call. I haven't been in a while but I think they still have stores in both Newton and Wellesley.

        1. Shaw's/Star Market usually has them. At the one I shop at most often (Packard's Corner, Allston) they display them in the smoked meats section for some odd reason.

          1. Bought some recently at Pilgrim beef at Haymarket. I went by on Wednesday asking if I needed to pre-order and they said no, but they only have them on Friday/ Sat.
            When I got there at 5:30 on Friday they were already out, but when I told my sad tale, they went back and deboned a leg for me, and then sawed it into a couple of chunks. It was something like $1.25
