I keep seeing things on TV and reading recipes about marrow bones. I haven't had them in a few years (last time was Prune in NY - insanely good), and was thinking about trying to roast some on my own.
The problem is that I don't know where to look. I emailed Jesse from Dai Due and he suggested Richardson Farms. I then emailed them– no dice.
Of course I'm going to ask CM and WF; I just figured I'd ask on here first to see if anybody's had any luck.
That meat place on Bee Caves has 'em sometimes. (Meat House?) They're frozen, which is pretty standard when it comes to marrow bones, in my experience. And they're cross cut. Doubtful they'll be 6", but I've seen some in the 5" range there. I prefer bones cut lengthwise if I'm going to roast 'em, but they're tougher to find.
They almost always have them on the bottom shelf of the meat freezer at Wheatsville. They are from a local farm. I had a craving for them recently, and they were great!
