- Pack of 6, 1.5-ounce units
- Classic (rendered) duck fat
- Made in USA
Ruined by soybeans
The whole attraction to cooking with duck fat (besides the flavor) is that it’s a natural, healthy animal fat. Why on earth does this product need to contain soybeans (processed, not healthy)? Oh that’s right, because the government subsidizes soybean farms and so soybean products must now appear in everything Americans eat. Reprehensible.
One of my favorite fats
I try to watch both my calorie and fat intake but I do so by eating less and choosing my fats for flavor. Duck fat gives ordinary dishes like spinach or mashed potatoes more taste and complexity that would butter or, God forbid, margarine. The French have known this for centuries and use duck fat to add flavor and depth to a wide variety of foods.
I sometimes buy my duck fat in larger tubs, 10-16 oz., but I like these little 1.5 oz. containers. They stay fresh on the shelf when unopened and then I use the entire thing, not needing to worry about finding room for it in my overly-stocked refrigerator. The cost per ounce is not to bad when buying it in these little cups, about the same as some of the larger tubs. The only thing that I don’t like is the the oils and fat solids tend to separate. Not a big deal if I am mixing it into a dish or browning something with it, but if I want to use it as a spread (highly recommended) I have to stick it in the fridge first and then stir it up. Other than that I must say that this is a staple for me and a great addition to any pantry (when used reasonably, of course).
STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE
Tastes so good it hurts
Another item I could not find locally, but Amazon had.
Get your own duck
Awesome for everything
I will say though that what you get in these little cups is pretty much identical to what you get if you collect the fat from a roasted duck…but good if you use the fat a lot more often than you roast ducks (I do save fat but honestly…the grocery store only gets ducks so often).
This seems good quality…has all the flavor, strained so you get only the fat (no “jelly”, duck bits, or other rendering byproducts)
Turns solid in the fridge, liquid in the cups. Refrigerate after opening…can use about 2-4 times per cup depending on what you’re doing with it.
