ShabbyChicBee:  My DH buys them at the local Chinese grocery stores (H Mart or T&T) or at the butcher shop.

This is what the packaging looks like at the grocery store.

just go the meat counter at your grocery store and ask for bones with marrow. it’s not unusual for people to eat it, so it shouldn’t be that hard to find. my grandma loved to eat it 🙂

Any butcher should be able to hook you up. If your grocery store has a butcher or a meat department, they will most definitely have bones for you. Some grocery stores even sells beef bones split in half as dog treats, usually wrapped in cellophane and frozen.

ShabbyChicBee:   I am curious on this … How do you eat it or plan to eat it? Like what kind of recipes do you know of? I’ve never heard of any one eating this but, I’ll try anything especially if it works lol

lilchicana:  Sometimes you can find them frozen in bags at the supermarket but usually only where they still have a full service butcher’s counter. Many grocery stores don’t employ butchers any longer, just meat cutters. They order meat in large crovac packages and cut them cut down for their trays.

Interesting. I JUST read about bone marrow on a hair forum saying it was good to put on hair for those who have lots of shedding.

This seems weird- but I work in a lab and sometimes we have to do disections and you know, use the marrow for sequencing and stuff (TMI, so I’ll stop here), so if you’re having trouble getting it out of the bone, use a syringe. Even if it doesn’t have a needle on the end, if you can use that and use a broth or even water and kind of use it like you’re basting a turkey it will really break up the marrow that’s sticking in there..

 

again. sorry. so weird! but maybe helpful! lol

ShabbyChicBee:  Noooooo, don’t boil them, roast them! Then sprinkle them with coarse sea salt and enjoy spread on toasted crusty bread. I really like to add a bit of gremolata to offset the richness with some acid.

If you happen to be in the Northeast, Market Basket usually has them. Otherwise, an Asian or Latin grocery store or any full service butcher shop would be a good bet.
