All Natural Rendered Duck Fat


  • 2-3 pounds of all natural duck skin and fat
  • Salt
  • Water


  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the all natural duck skin and fat into small pieces, about 1 inch in size. Be sure to remove any meat or muscle tissue from the skin.
  3. Place the duck skin and fat in a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Add enough water to cover the pieces completely.
  4. Heat the pot over medium-low heat and let the water come to a simmer. Cook the duck skin and fat in the water for about 30 minutes, until the fat has fully rendered and the skin is crispy and brown.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat and strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer. Discard any solids that remain.
  6. Pour the rendered duck fat into a clean glass jar or container. Add a pinch of salt to help preserve the fat and give it a little extra flavor.
  7. Let the duck fat cool to room temperature, then cover the jar tightly and store it in the refrigerator.

All natural rendered duck fat is a fantastic ingredient to have on hand in the kitchen. It adds richness and flavor to any dish, and can be used as a substitute for butter or oil in many recipes. Use it to sauté vegetables, fry eggs, or make a rich and flavorful gravy. And don't forget to save the crispy duck skin - it makes a delicious snack or garnish!
