Counterfeit Duck Confit: All Of The Flavor, Without The Labor

A recipe from David Lebowitz for easy duck confit. Kayelle, I was thinking of you and Souschef and your newfound love for duck. I know my DH would love this, too. Saving for the winter.

Oh boy, I'm sure saving this too GG!!

I'm wondering how much harder it will be for me to get just duck legs, when I had to special order the whole ducks from our local grocery. I may have to break down and go somewhere like "Whole Foods", better known as "the food store for only the mega wealthy Trump types".

You're welcome! For everyone who might like it!

Kayelle, maybe your local store could special-order the legs, too. Or buy online. This looks like a good deal. I haven't researched this company yet, but I'll keep it in mind: http://www.farmfreshduck.com/14-duck-legs

When I buy duck. I go to the Chinese grocer. It's usually much cheaper and always available.

Yes I am sure that recipe will taste delicious. It is quite similar to a french recipe I have (i.e. same method of the marinade overnight etc but simmered in just a very little wine, where it renders it juices and fat). It is incredibly savoury/tasty and one of my fav recipes. The cooked duck legs can be crisped up in the oven on another occasion (i.e. works well).

Similarities are the salt, chopped garlic and torn bayleaves. Where it differs is using white wine (instead of the gin) and either fresh sage or fresh thyme (in the marinade).

I have noted the baking method (starting off in a cold oven etc) and will try it out (using the marinade of the french recipe I have) instead of the simmering method. Thanks.

Thanks Bigjim, that's a great idea but no grocers like that in these parts.

GG..I could look into that online place, they even have duck tongues.

Duck tongues? What the heck do you do with duck tongues?

Our nearest Asian market is 40 minutes away. I see a roadtrip in my near future.

Another online source is Maple Leaf Farms. They're "just down the road" from us, and their ducks are also available at Market Basket by me. OR you could come visit - I'll buy the duck and trimmings, you cook the duck.

Go buy a whole duck and break it down, it isn't hard. Do pan seared duck breasts and then make confit out of the legs.
