Product Description

Confit Duck Legs from South West of France, 2 Legs

Worshipped by the Pharaohs and celebrities at feasts among the Greeks and Romans, duck and goose were tamed by man soon after and then fattened up. The confit was originally a way of preserving meat with what was available at the time. After being immersed in salt for 24 hours, the duck legs are placed in a pot of melted fat for 3 or 4 hours. The duck legs are then placed in a stoneware dish and completely covered in hot fat. The meat therefore remains tender and retains its flavour.

Keep at room temperature.

Prepare & Use

How to serve:
Confit duck legs can be enjoyed with a salad, can be cooked in a parsley and garlic sauce: heat the duck legs over a gentle heat to melt the fat. In the meantime chop potatoes into approx. 5mm thick discs and dry them well using a tea towel. Remove the legs from the pot when they are golden in colour, drain them and keep them warm. Place the potatoes on a moderate heat to cook for 10 mins stirring them occasionally. As soon as they are cooked remove the excess fat with a soup spoon, add salt, pepper, garlic and chopped parsley. Decorate your plate with some salad leaves; empty the potatoes onto the plate and finally place the duck leg skin side up. You can also add peeled boletus

wow !

fantastic, they cook really easy and the trick is to turn up the oven to the highest for the last few mins of cooking to really crisp up that skin, generous portions and the fat is perfect for roasting potatoes and veggies. I through eveything into a baking tray and sat the duck legs on top... the perfect meal. Well worth the hefty price tag.

Really lovely flavour and simple to prepare. Perfect to have on hand in the cupboard for a wonderful gourmet dinner should you find yourself needing to russle up something in a hurry. Lovely duck fat left over to roast vegetables and potatoes

I have tried the other confits available at Ocado & I rate this the highest. Best flavour,least stringy,least rubbery with loads of lovely duck fat for your accompanying roast veg.

Recipes

Tagliatelle with Duck

Tagliatelle with Duck video

Simon’s rich and hearty Duck Tagliatelle is a delicious alternative to traditional beef or pork ragù sauces. Simon uses tinned confit duck, which is easy to prepare but adds a meaty richness to the finished sauce. This would make a perfect dinner party dish served with fresh egg pasta. Part of our Daily Brunch with Ocado recipe collection.

Le Fameux Cassoulet

Le Fameux Cassoulet

You may well know that there is not one ultimate cassoulet recipe but dozens, and each town in South-West France will claim theirs is the original. As we don't want to stir up this hornet's next, Pascal Aussignac has provided his mother's own personal favourite, which does not have a crust of breadcrumbs. One thing that you must bear in mind is to always cook a large cassoulet at least a day ahead, which enhances the flavour, then you can reheat it as required. It is the perfect party dish.
