Pope's nose. That's it.

We pay for beef and veal bones, chicken and turkey parts, pork neck bones. Nothing is free.

I don't so much mind paying for them. I mind the high prices for those parts.

I've paid $5 at the butcher's for a bone for my dog before...no meat on it. Andy is right...nothing is free in our country....not even freedom

I save it for stock.


I find it very annoying that turkey parts like the wings and giblets cost more than a whole turkey! I can buy a whole turkey for less than a dollar a pound but have to pay twice that for the crap parts I'd use for stock.
When I was a kid I always thought the chicken back (with tail attached) looked like a turtle, so we always called the tail the turtle head.

Now that you mention it, it does look like a turtle.

Especially not freedom....Thank God there are men and women who are willing to pay the price for us to have it. Don't take it for granted. (Climbing off my soapbox now.)

I don't expect any of it to be free. I'd just like them to be priced reasonably.

Here Butchers and Fishmongers give you the bones so as too retain good customers, in Wales unlike England everyone gets free prescribed medication.
