    Duck fat

    Shop Now
    I tried doing a search for this but wasn't too fruitful.

    I am thinking of obtaining some duck fat for use. Aside from rendering my own, does anyone have suggestions on a good(clean) source to purchase some that they use?

    I've bought duck fat from D'Artagnan and Amazon but they each have soybean added to it. Why? I do not know. But it's really easy to make your own- roast a duck, pour off fat into a ball jar and voila. I have a large ball jar that couldn't contain the fat from two ducks.

    This. Last time I roasted a duck, I got two cups of fat. And I got to eat a duck.

    You guys do make a good case for rendering my own. I do love duck, just need to learn how to cook it.

    I posted a duck recipe a long time ago. But it still rules.

    Whats to learn? Put in a dish, stick in hot oven until done. I scored the skin, to help the fat drain off. But short of overcooking or under cooking it, its really hard to ruin a bird.

    Does store bought duck taste better than the liver with wings that I shoot on occasion? Not only is it very lean, but it tastes like ass.
