Duck Confit

Right Folks,

Duck confit is one of those vaguely fancy sounding foods and I must say, the rich people seem to like it a lot. In the real world, they are not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea, but then nothing is everyone’s cup of tea. Duck confit refers to duck legs cooked and then preserved in duck fat. In fact, confit literally means to preserve in French. Because of all the fat it doesn’t have to be kept in the fridge. It’s a recipe from the olden days, as in, before-the-fridge-olden days. Fun side note, my two under 10-year-olds firmly believe the 90s are the olden days.
