Definitely. I prefer mallard, but then, there are those who would say that the wild duck has a stronger taste, I just find it tastes more like duck <g>. The meat has a different texture. Probably because the mallards have more muscle from all the flying they do...Now I'm wishing I'd ordered some ducklings...

Duck is a big favorite of mine. I've never had wild duck of any kind. Unfortunately, SO doesn't care for duck so I don't hae it very often. Once in a while I'll buy myself a boneless duck breast and pan roast it.

When I am lucky enough to have it, I'll sautee virtually anything in it. We have a mallard "farm" near here, and the one time I bought it, it was so lean that it lacked flavor! Nothing like the duck you buy in the grocery.

Thanks for the offer, but if it involves getting up early and sitting in a cold wet duck blind for hours waiting for the critters to show up so I can shoot them, I'll pass.

I'll pass, too. Been there, done that, didn't shot a duck, froze my butt off, and I think the t-shirt was tossed in the rag bag years ago. (Hey--I ran out in the rain to bring my hens into the barn because I didn't want them getting wet today--what makes you think I could shoot a duck?)

my mom's gingerbread cookies were unsurpassed in our circle. she ended up baking them for all our friends because she didn't want to part with her secret recipe. anna's ginger thins are a close approximation to mom's ginger cookies. i still don't have a recipe for those marvelous, melt-in-your-mouth cookies, but i do know that the "secret" ingredient was duck fat. i'm not much of a baker, but it occurs to me that the duck fat might work marvels for many other cookie varieties as well. anyone out there brave enough to put it to the test?
