Clancey's Meats in Linden Hills (Mpls)

I went to Clancey's Meats today. I met Kristen (or Kirsten, can't remember) and her partner Greg. Nice folks. They sell sustainably produced meats and fish. It seems that for the most part the meat and fish is locally produced or processed.

There was smoked salmon and trout from a fellow in Wisconsin. The shrimp wasn't local and neither was the caviar, but the chicken and pork and beef and bison and turkey and duck were local products.

I bought a duck from Wild Acres farm and took it home and cooked it up. Tasty. Much better than the ducks I bought at Dragon Star a few months ago. Decent price but higher than Dragon Star at $4 something a pound.

I recommend the place to you because I hope it stays in business so I can return for more ducks and other tasty meat products in the future.

Also in the bag on my return was frozen veal stock that looks terrific ($2.81 for a quart), some Lucques olives marinated in champagne vineagar and thyme, some Niman Ranch Speck (think german proscuitto), a couple of pounds of Hope Creamery butter, some Niman salami and four nice thick pork chops.

They are in the space formerly occupied by Linden Hills Meats.
