What is duck confit exactly?
Duck confit is made with very simple ingredients: duck legs, duck fat, and salt and spices. The word “confit” can be used to describe the finished product and the process of making it. In French, the word means "preserved."
How do you make confit?
It’s very easy to make confit. In this cooking technique, meats are cooked in fat for a long time at low temperature, which renders tough cuts like duck legs more tender. Confit can be made with chicken legs, turkey legs, goose legs, garlic, and even vegetables. Before refrigeration, it was vital to preserve meat for the winter, so duck legs were slow-cooked and covered with duck fat in a clay vessel. This would keep all season when partially submerged in the earth or stashed in a cool root cellar.
