How to use Home Gourmet Duck Confit?
Duck Confit can be used in many ways. The leg can be shredded and used as a general ingredient in pasta, salads, crepes, pies, risotto or it can be prepared as a whole leg either baking or pan frying. Baking the leg and serving as its own succulent aspect to a meal is the more common application.


Baking Duck Confit:
Preheat the oven to 180c. Open the can and remove the legs from the duck fat (retain the duck fat as it is used as a preserving agent it the can and is wonderful for roast potatoes at a later date).
Place legs in an oven proof dish skin side up and roast for 10 -12 minutes. You can then grill the skin side for a further 2 minutes to enhance the rich crispy skin.
