After hearing a lot about cooking with bone marrow, I decided to do some experimenting. The woman at the meat counter of my local Publix helped me pick out a gruesome-looking package of bone sections, but I had no idea what to do with them.
Most people just give them to their dog, she said.
Regardless, somewhere between chew toy and haute cuisine lies something truly remarkable. Bone marrow provides a rich, deep meat flavor with a thick, creamy texture that lets your whole mouth have a taste. And, lucky for us, bone marrow is simple to prepare, with marrow bones available in the freezer section at most grocery stores around town.
