Special Foods for Special People

Number one son is coming home for Thanksgiving and momma’s gotta get her groove on in the kitchen because he’s a foodie too. Day by day, I’ll begin the conglomerate of dishes to serve on Thanksgiving, and during the prelude to the big feast. Today, I tackle duck confit. Half a duck, kosher salt,3 bay leaves, peppercorns, herbs de provence, 3 cloves of garlic, duck fat and vegetable oil into the ceramic pot. Cover and cook at 260 degrees fahrenheit for 3 hrs 20 minutes. Let it cool in the oil. Remove the meat and reserve for duck rillette later this week.


Strain the remaining fat and enjoy this liquid gold used in a variety of ways for weeks to come. Fry eggs in it. Slather it on your turkey before cooking. Take a bath in it! Seriously, it is that good!

Sonny’s gonna love it!
