    Pierre Dance's Note:

    Another one whose history is lost. The writing on the 3x5 card isn't anyone I recognize. I've had the cook book, I found the card in, for 25-30 years. I haven't even thought of this dish in at least 10 years but I'm fixing it tomorrow for supper. ( When I first submitted this recipe, I just said neckbones. Recipezaar's editer kicked it back with the question what kind of neckbones, Pork, Beef, Turkey, etc. I've always made it with Pork but Beef sounds good and Turkey sounds fantastic! I'm going to have to try them both, but the turkey first I think.
