    How do you get to the marrow? Isn’t it inside the bone?
    Do you have to specifically ask for ‘marrow bones’ when purchasing ?

    • Yes, ask your butcher for marrow bones and there’s essentially two types they’ll offer you:

      1) Short, stumpy ones, which you’d stand vertically on your baking tray and roast, then scrape out with an oyster fork or something equally slender.

      2) Large, long bones, sliced open, which are a bit easier to deal with. You can roast them face up and use a teaspoon to scrape out the marrow.
