Duck Fat

I purchased some duck fat from William Sonoma recently and wonder how you use it, if you ever have. I know about frying potatoes in it, but what else?

I think you can use it to fry or sauté anything and it will just give it a different flavor. You could shallow-fry some chicken legs, like a simpler version of confit.

You can saute almost anything in duck fat that you would in butter.

As for duck fat potatoes, rather than pan fry the potatoes in the duck fat, I always liked them better in the oven. Melt a tablespoon or two of the duck fat, toss your potato slices in it to coat, and roast on a baking sheet in a 425F oven until golden brown. Yum!

Darn, I thought you were going to say that a new character had been added on Hawaii Five O.

Did you see the DDD where they pan seared foie gras in duck fat? I believe they served it on top of a basket of fries also done in the fat.
