Where to Buy a Ham Bone in NYC?

alanf Dec 29, 2010 07:57 AM

Does anyone know where in Manhattan a ham bone can be purchased? I'd like to prepare the traditional southern New Year's meal of black-eyed peas and greens, and I'd like to use a ham bone at least one of those dishes, if not both. I've made do with ham hocks in the past, and they work pretty well. But ideally I'd prefer a cured (but not smoked) ham bone.

        Have you had any luck? I used to buy mine at the market in Grand Central Station, but when I went there this new year's I found that they had gone out of business and the space has been taken over by Murray's. If you've found a good source I'd love to know where you found one....

            I've had very good luck getting bones from the deli counters in upscale markets. My dad scores them at Zabars regularly and I've gotten them from several East Side spots. Never more than $10.00 and when it is more than $5.00 there is always enough good ham on the bone to make it a bargain.
