Bone Marrow "cubes" at Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe

Obi-Wan Kenobi warned us that our eyes can deceive us, but the marrow cubes at Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe are exactly as they seem: Star Wars-themed. Kate Kavanaugh and Josh Curtiss’ kitschy cubes are true to the roots of their shop, where sustainability is the star of the show. To make the cubes, they render, clarify, and double strain excess marrow and then pour it into silicone Stormtrooper and Yoda molds. At $1.50 a piece, they’re an added value for Western Daughters and fun for their Star Wars fanboy customers. “They’re perfect for cooking steak, making gravy, pasta, or even bone broth,” says Curtiss. May the force (and flavor) of marrow be with you.
