Duck Leg Confit
DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: Duck confit is unarguably one of the most famous French meals. Our version is pre-cooked and ready for you to warm and enjoy as you would in the finest restaurants. Both the legs & thighs of Moulard Ducks are marinated overnight in a specially-curated, secret blend of fresh herbs and spices. Then, they are slow-cooked in pre-seasoned, rendered duck fat. This process infuses them with a juicy flavor that creates a most tender, "fall off the bone" dining experience. A simple, but exceptionally impressive and delicious meal.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT: We take the arduous task of preparing this delicacy from you and present only the finest rendition of this famous French disk. Preparing duck confit properly is more of a technique than a recipe. It is essentially a way of macerating the leg and thigh meat of duck with its own dense fat. Initially developed in Gascony, France, this method was developed centuries ago to naturally preserve the precious meat.

STORAGE/PREPARATION: Our duck leg confit is pre-cooked and needs only to be thawed, warmed up, and plated. Keep frozen until ready to cook. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Preheat oven to 350º. Remove duck leg from the package and place on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes; broil 5-10 minutes further to achieve a perfectly crisp, golden skin. Plate with mashed, or potatoes au gratin and a freshly steamed or sauteéd vegetable of your choice.
