I purchased a small whole duck at my local coop 2 days ago. I was planning to cook the whole thing with a method I have used before that involves first steaming for a about 40 minutes to render fat and then then roasting to crisp the skin. However, I have been a bit busy the last couple of days so today I took the duck duck apart, removed the breasts and cooked them like steaks. They were delicious, but now I need ideas for the rest of the duck.
I have reserved all the parts. Could I render enough fat out of the backbone, and wings to cook the leg/thighs comfit?
Ideas? I have vacuum sealer and PID controller for sous vide cooking so suggestions using that would be welcome.
