About this cut
If you’re looking for a rich, elegant and ultra-flavorful alternative to beef for a special dinner, Duck Legs are a great choice. But don’t go roasting these like a steak: the high fat content and strong leg muscles in Duck Legs need to be cooked low and slow. The classic preparation for duck legs is "confit," or slow-cooked submerged in fat, and for good reason: they become rich, succulent and fall-off-the-bone tender.
Our pastured ducks are carefully raised by our network of poultry farmers in the mid-Atlantic, where they graze freely and have ample access to fresh water for bathing. Their diet includes GMO-free grain, plus grasses and legumes foraged from the pasture. They are never fed any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products.
Basic Cooking Technique
Slow-cook submerged in fat for "confit," or braise in liquid.

Be very careful at the end not to overcook or dry out the very delicate and tender flavors. Fancy for guests. I've had plenty of fancy duck before this is the best. Careful not to over cook it at the end ... cooked very well and easily zero feathers. Thanks!
Reasons that I will buy these duck legs again: 1. More meat on bone than expected 2. Just the right amount of fat for cooking 3. Very tasty 4. Good value for price 4. Pasture raised and organic 5. Kosher
These duck legs made a wonderful confit de canard for Shabbos. I marinated it in gin overnight. 2000000000% will buy again!
Legs were delicious
I made duck confit in the crock pot for one the Yom Tov meals and it was the best meal I ate in a long time. It was a yom tov eating it!
Cooked them in the instant pot. Crisped skin on sauté. Made sauce with broth, wine & cherry juice. Cooked on high pressure for 35 minutes. Removed duck & reduced sauce added cherries.
These were gorgeous pieces and in addition to making great duck confit, I ended up with a reserve of rendered duck fat to use for other future uses.
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
