i intend to put both of these delish ideas on my waiting table just as soon as my shipment of duck fat gets here. i placed an order, my first, for duck fat as a subscribe and save item from amazon earlier today. so, every three months i will be receiving 6 little 1.5 ounce containers of duck fat in my mail box. can't wait....

I've never had duck or duck fat! I'm going to have to give it a try someday.

I'll cook it for you on the camp grill when you crash our reunion!

i would also suggest croutons tossed in the fat before baking. if you have the ability you can sous vide with the duck fat it doesnt take much that way.

I've had duck one once or twice but never duck fat. The hubby doesn't like duck (for reasons I well understand) but all these ideas sound really interesting. I might have to get together with dad and try one or two of these. I think mom doesn't like duck either so her and the hubby can go out for dinner. :)

The first time I had duck was from a Chinese restaurant when I was in my early 20's. My ironic reaction was that it was way too greasy for my tastes. Years later I end up in culinary school and find out that the "grease" is almost the best part!

I grew up eating mallard. I have only cooked "farmed" duck a few times. It definitely has more body fat than mallard. But then, we used to skin our ducks and take the legs and breasts. My aunt and grandma would roast duck--and wild goose. They would drape bacon over the breasts of these birds to add fat. I am rather fond of mallard...not terribly fond of the bead of buckshot one would encounter more often than not.

I have many memories of sitting on the backstep in the garage at my uncle's plucking ducks and geese with my cousins (and saving the breast feathers-down for my grandma. She made pillows). And, I've been out duck hunting at dawn with my father, brothers, and cousins. Cold, dark...I don't miss those mornings. Our dog loved to hunt--he didn't mind breaking through the ice to get the ducks.

Do you notice a big difference in taste with wild vs. farmed?
