I have seen small packages of cut up beef (and pork and veal and lamb) neck semi-regularly at our local stores, but this weekend's pass through Hannaford was the first time I have seen packages of whole beef neck:
This is marvelous meat for stock, and can also be used for fantastic soups. Given the weather we've been having lately, I might be tempted to smoke a whole one.
Now, this post is tardy (as are a number of others I've been meaning to write up) so that lovely pile of meat may be all gone by now. The nice thing is, if a supermarket can get this once, they can get it again, and they will if enough of us ask.
