    Ideas for duck?

    Shop Now
    So, I bought a duck leg. Figured that before I order a whole duck, I should try a part first.

    I found some recipes by googling, but I'd love to hear some tried and loved ones from here.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    I like to roast mine with apples.

    Lucky duck!

    Every time I've been served duck at a fancy restaurant it's been rare in the middle and almost charred on the outside - like tuna is served, almost. I don't know if that's a duck thing or a restaurant thing, though!

    Generally speaking, duck and fruit go well together. Get creative!

    Ohhh... duck with mandarin oranges. Mmmm....

    It's also nice rubbed with a paste made of crushed garlic, fresh grated ginger, a touch of tamari and enough honey to bind the paste (I use a teaspoon of honey for a whole duck to be divided between 5 of us, so a drop or two should do).

    Same. Incidentally, I do NOT like that. I cook mine thoroughly.

    Good hints and ideas!

    Has anyone done a duck confit? (Say con-fee with your best Maurice Chevalier accent.) It seems truly decadent.

    This recipe: Easy Duck Confit Recipe | Simply Recipes is a little time consuming, but is very easy and delicious!

    While the duck was resting after I took it out of the oven, I put most of the rendered fat into a pan and made duck fat french fries. They were awesome, and I understand why they've become so trendy. Some recipes recommend dipping them in aioli, but I thought they were stand alone good.
