I'd seen tubs of rendered duck fat on "Iron Chef America" for recipes where they sauteed or poached something in duck fat, and my wife always slobbered when it came out on the cooking stage. So, recently, I saw a recipe (either on or linked to from Leite's Culinaria) for a sort of Potatoes O'Brien that used duck fat, thought it would provide a comforting counterpoint in my wife's last month of pregnancy. I actually searched Google, not even contemplating that Amazon would carry this item. But Amazon was in the first results and I'd just received an Amazon gift certificate. It was fate. I ordered this. Amazingly, it didn't need to be shipped overnight or refrigerated. It's prepared in sanitary conditions, packed well, and it keeps. I got it a few days after ordering, it was in good condition, and when I used it for the potatoes the following Sunday, it was delicious. My wife and our three-year-old dug into those potatoes like there was no tomorrow. My only caveat is that if you plan to order this, plan a few recipes that will use it. You get a lot and it's more than you expect from the description if you've never used it.
This is my new "go-to" for cooking chicken & pork. And it is unsurpassed on roasted potatoes! It adds a delicious, subtle flavor that you are guaranteed to get compliments on.
Perfect - just what I needed. This is a large container so you can keep it in the refrig and use it often. Really adds to any "browned" potato dish (I made Tartiflette and it was perfect). Price it right considering the quantity.
I started with the single-serving version of this and liked it so much that I am going with the larger size in the future. This has mild but unmistakable roasted duck flavor, unlike some of the competitors that are almost tasteless. It fills the kitchen with a nice aroma and adds a very nice flavor depending on how you are using it. Even mixed in long-cooked stews I sometimes still get a POP from an onion or something sautéed in it. It is great for omelets or just a lightly fried egg.
Duck fat is a delicious way to add flavor to other dishes that call for butter or oil. I tried finding it in my local stores and was disappointed that it was nowhere to be found. I'm annoyed that I did't just go with Amazon sooner. I'm no connoisseur of duck fat, but this brand suited my needs well enough. Next time I need to try making Duck Fat Fries. ;)
