Andy,

Let them know that the breast is considered a white meat, even though it is darker than turkey.

You might have to suffer through just eating the leg quarters though... oh the things one does for the joy of others...

I have no interest in getting them into eating duck. I gave up years ago trying to convince people to eat things they don't want to. I'm happy to carry the entire responsibility of making sure the duck doesn't go to waste.

They're probably thinking I'm trying to get them to eat something really gross so I can laugh at their reactions. While I'm thinking they are missing out on a really great taste.

The road not taken...

Bolas, that is an amazing idea with the vacpac! We do 40-80 duck legs in a batch at work, so I don't know if it would be economical, but at home that is a treasure of an idea. Also, must reduce mess quite a bit. Thank you for that tidbit!

Just remember to keep a stiff upper lip while you carry out the responsibility, one shouldn't let a scrap of the duck go to waste.

I shredded the meat this morning, and then made a risotto with duck stock (made this day before yesterday).

This is amazing. It is probably a good thing I made a small dish of this, I could eat my weight in this.

Since I did duck breasts for VDay I thought it would be a perfect time to do confit again.

For 42 hours it sat in the fridge covered in salt, garlic, shallots, black pepper and thyme:



Then rinse and put into a dish:



Duck fat from the fridge was melted:



And finally it was poured over the duck pieces:



It is apparent I need more duck fat.

I will have more pictures in three hours.
