I just bought .72 pounds of ground lamb for $1.73 at a Food Emporium in Manhattan. The butcher said that it was fatty but fresh ground today. Is this the going rate for ground lamb in NYC? I rarely cook with meat and was expecting it to be more pricey. I don't mind if it's a little fatty, I'm just wondering if there is other stuff mixed into it.
