frozen duck

This is duck from Maple Leaf Farms mentioned earlier in the geese vs. pie post.  One was $16.00, the other was $18.00 and shipping was $17.00. So, shipping was 1/3 the cost. The prohibitive shipping cost was vitiated by the idea of using the dry ice to refill the Sodastream CO2 canisters but the dry ice was all melted except for a few tiny pieces and the lids on the canisters are too tight for my tools. The sub experiment was a blowout. Effectively the ducks cost 25.00 each.

Now I have two frozen ducks. What should I do with them?

Serve your guests some cold duck sparkling wine with whatever you end up making.

Do you really need a recipe for duck tacos?

I thought the same thing. I figured you just make carne molida out of the duck meat, and cook it the way you would have cooked the other meat.

They have them at the super market where I shop. First time that I've seen them there. $16.

My mother refused to cook Duck or Goose saying "it was too fatty".

Had it last year ago - "Peking Duck" - and yeah it is a little fatty.
But good.

Don't know if I'd go to the trouble of getting it again.
