I have never seen them here. I think I have fixed them only once since we were married. As a kid we had them from time to time, with cabbage. I love the neck of the turkey.

Love neck bones! I make lots of soups and use neck bones or shin bones to make the base broth. When I take the bones out to let them cool enough to handle I have to force myself not to eat the meat I'm pulling off the bones.

No salt, but, pepper if desired. An inch of water in the skillet with burner sorta low. Add water as needed. Probably, tender after 2 hours of simmering, maybe a little longer.

Have you ever eaten neck bones or would you?
Yes, and I agree they are absolutely delicious. As my mother did she would make an Italian gravy (pasta sauce) with the usual ingredients of olive oil, crushed tomatoes, tomatoe paste, and tomatoe sauce, fresh rosemary, basil, oregano, and sautéed onions, and garlic. Once this was on the stove in a big sauce pot she would brown her pork neck bones, a lamb shank and Italian pork sausage really well and then toss it all in her tomatoe sauce and let it all simmer for a couple of hours (2-3) on low.

It made all the difference in the world to the flavor of her very hearty gravy/sauce and she always made enough for that night's dinner as well as freezing a portion for another meal or two.

Chef Michael Symon also uses neck bones in I believe he stated it was his grandmother's recipe. Interesting but I haven't tried it yet. I bet it makes the recipe more savory.

I found the recipe.


Ingredients
1/2 cup olive oil
1 onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
Pinch kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound pork neck bones
1 pound ground veal
1 pound ground beef
1 pound spicy Italian sausage, loose or removed from casings
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 (28-ounce) can San Marzano tomatoes, with their juice
2 bay leaves
1 pound dried lasagna noodles
2 pounds whole milk ricotta cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano leaves
2 large eggs

My old Italian grandmother, God rest her soul, used to put neckbones in her sauce for flavor. When it was finished she would fish out the large chunks and give them to my brother and I to eat. I remember thoroughly enjoying it!!

I love neckbones so much that I'll buy at least 2 packages and put them in a crackpot with a small measure of water and let them simmer for 4-8 hour. It would be "neckbone night" for me!!! Nothing but necks!!!

Braised neck bones are great. I also add smoked neck bones to a pot of collards and onions.
