marrow bones - price and defrosting?
Do you need to defrost the marrow bones before roasting? Also, how much do you pay for them in the bay area? I just went to Whole Foods and they're $5.99/lb. Did I get shanked?
no need to defrost before roasting - and I think that's a fair price for better raised beef marrow...
you could get cheaper factory farmed marrow bones at safeway.....not sure I would eat marrow from those bones....
Most pastured or grassfed marrow bones are going to cost at least that much in the bay area...
enjoy and know that you are getting some good stuff!
I bought marrow bones at Diablo Foods in Lafayette recently and they were about three bucks per pound. They will cut them to any length you like. I trust the quality there more than I would trust Whole Foods.
