Confit is derived from an ancient French method of preserving meat: duck legs are seasoned with herbs and spices and then cooked very slowly in rendered duck fat until they are meltingly tender and deeply flavorful.

In addition, the tasty, succulent meat can be shredded and added to soups, stews, or vegetable dishes, or used to make hash, a filling for ravioli, or an appetizer spread (puréed with a little of the cooking fat--the French call this "rillettes"). Make it once and you'll likely want it to become a staple in your pantry!
