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.

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

Delicious

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
