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.

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.
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
