0.95 Cent Kitchen Tip

I have been told by many people that my speghetti sauce is some of the best sauce they have ever tasted. Ironically, I never really make it the same way twice. Sometimes I add a little more of this or that based on what I have on hand. However, one thing NEVER changes! I always add one pork neck bone to my sauce. Now don't stop reading there because that sounds gross. The only use you are getting out of it is flavor. I don't usually use the meat that is on the bone nor do I leave it in the sauce when I go to serve it with the pasta. It is purely there for flavor. The cost of a pork neck bone? Well, this last time I paid a whopping 0.95 cents! Sometimes I pay a little more but that is when they package one or more bones together. I just freeze the other bones for future use. So my tip to you is add a pork neck bone to your homemade sauce (or mine, recipe here) and get ready to be amazed!

  2. Probably a goofy question, but where would you buy a neck bone?

  3. I get them at Publix and they sell them in the meat department with the pork. If you don't see it ask the butcher. I've also seen them in this AMAZING local Italian market that has a full butcher. They are of course a bit more expensive there but all good little Italian ladies add neck bones to there sauce and just remove them before serving lol so if you live near an Italian market they will probably have them.

  5. Fantastic idea! I WILL be trying it! Stands to reason it would be good...pork being the BEST meat in the universe....bacon comes from pork...all good things start with pork! I tend to get carried away. We raised hogs growing up. Yum.

  6. Thanks - small town here so no Italian place, but we have some awesome butchers I'll have to ask.
