When this ad' came through with the post, I couldn't resist.
Confit is usually made with two different cuts of Duck; the 'cuisse', and the 'manchon' (the thigh and the upper wing). This offer was for Manchons, and at €1.39 per kilo one can hardly say no!
Stage one is to salt the pieces lightly, and leave them overnight.
The pieces are then packed into sterilised pots or jars and the fat poured over. A round piece of greaseproof paper and an elastic band should keep out any unwanted visitors.
Pieces are taken out as required, and gently fried until heated through. Voila... it's as simple as that! If you keep your Confit in a cool place, it'll last for 6 months; if you can resist.
Traditionally Confit is eaten with Pommes de Terre Sarladaise; sliced potato cooked in duck fat (what else), with garlic and parsley. Yum.

Carole. It used to be said that S W France had the lowest rate of heart disease in Europe, and it was all down to duck fat and red wine! The things that the kill-joys would like us to abandon, are often the best for us.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you had a good break. I suggest Roll-Neck Jumpers.
