Confit de canard in a can

I have a few cans of duck confit that I would like to prepare for dinner.

Would anyone know how long the duck from these cans should be cooked (warmed?); at what temperature and in what type of pan?

Also, can/should the fat from the cans be used for roasting potatos to accompany the duck or should I just book my by pass procedure now?

there's canned confit abound, jet. availability of fresh or vacuum-sealed ranges greatly & various consumers prefer various items.

as for the cooking of the meat, the confit i buy in vacuum-packs is fully cooked. cook or slice onto this or that..... gently cook.
the fat in the confit may well be a fat from a different animal, though, if purchased.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
