I impulsively bought a small bag of lamb neck bones at my local greenmarket last week. Is there any quick way to cook them? All of the recipes I've found are stews, but I've already got about a gallon of bison bolognese in the fridge. Ideally I'd... (more)
I just opened up my package of grass fed lamb livers I received from my local rancher. I first noticed that they really didn't have a smell...until I started cutting into it. Now I think they smell faintly fruity--like plums. Anyone else share... (more)

Does anyone know if this ground lamb from Whole Foods (from New Zealand) is: Grass Fed? How old is it likely to be? (I don't think it is shipped frozen, and New Zealand is pretty far away from Philadelphia). From what I understand, lamb... (more)

So, I switched to lamb as my main red meat and animal fat instead of grassefed beef about 4 months ago thinking that it would be lower in environmental toxins because of the young age of the animal at culling. Am I fooling myself? Does all the... (more)
