duck confit in a can

Scott Staley | Aug 21, 2002 05:06 PM

In France a couple years ago, my wife's aunt made us duck confit out of a can. The can was maybe 8 inches across and 4 deep and probably had 6-8 leg-thigh pieces all packed in solid duck fat. I've seen recipes to make this, but they are too much work, when I swear this stuff out of a can is great and all you do is warm it up.(it's very popular in France)

I can't find this anywhere. Not Fox and Obel, not Wholefoods. I haven't even found a mail order online. Anyone have a source for this?
