can I freeze duck confit?

A Fish Called Wanda | Nov 29, 2005 08:18 PM

I got a little carried away in the store today and bought too many duck legs for confit. I know it can stay for couple of months if stored in its own fat, but I usually freeze fat so that I can reuse it later (I mean much later -- it lasts for about a year in the freezer). The question is can I freeze duck legs separately from the fat? If I don't freeze them, how long will they last in the fridge if tightly wrapped, but not covered in fat?

Not that I would mind eating confit for 4 nights in a row, but I am a little worried about my waist line, especially after Thanksgiving.

Thank you so much for your help!
