What do you do with these?

Hey there Stephanie!

It really depends upon what type of neck bones you are talking about.

Turkey and Chicken neck bones make great stock. Add some water to the pot with the neck bones along with some celery, onions, carrots, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil reduce heat and simmer until done. Pour everything through a strainer and you have some wonderful stock. You can pick any meat off of the bones and use it to make soup or use it in a casserole.

Smoked pork or turkeyIf its smoked necks like pork or smoked turkey, they are great for seasoning beans or greens. Just cook right along with your greens or beans.

Beef neck bones are great for vegetable beef soup. Just make your stock using the bone along with some onion, carrots, celery, salt, pepper and a couple of bay leaves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the meat falls off the bone. Add your veggies and any other seasonings your recipe calls for and continue cooking until the veggies are tender and you have some wonderful soup.

I hope this helps!
