Duck confit !!!!!!!!

Sea salt, garlic, thyme and bayleaf rub for 36 hrs(1oz/1 clove/1 sprig/2 leaves).6 mallard legs and 2 pinkfoot legs.



Wiped off and into a suitable casserole dish and cover with duck fat.



Cook in the oven for 7hrs(too long for these and I would recommend testing after 4)@ as low a temp as possible(180"f)unfortunately mine crept up to 220 :x





In the fridge for a month or 3 to mature..........I can almost hear my arteries hardening in anticipation.

KILLITnGRILLIT, looks healthy to me too. Haven't confited game, just chicken, duck, goose, pork and lamb. Must confit game this coming season. Thanks for the idea.

Nah! Confit is definitely good for you!  That looks absolutely scrummy.
