Home made duck preserve...

I know that recently I've neglected my blog, I've neglected YOU. But the truth is that you can't imagine how much work there is with a small baby until you actually have one ;) Ok, enough with the excuses and now with the post which was waiting for publishing for over a month.
Some time ago we bought a duck (as it's always cheaper to buy whole and use the parts whenever you like). We made delicious duck breasts with oranges and duck confit, but what do you do with left meat on the bone...? So after you take your breasts off and take off you whole(!) legs you're left with the carcass with a lot of meat and fat on it - and here's what we made :)

How to make it...

- rest of the duck after taking breasts and legs off
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 shallot
- salt, pepper

Preheat the oven to 180 C and put your duck into an oven proof dish. Bake you duck until the meat is done and you have a good cup of fat in the dish (it's hard for me to say how long exactly, depends on how big was your duck etc. mine was baking for more than 1 hour). Leaving 1 tablespoon of fat in a glass, pour the rest into a dish of your choice (may be also a jar) and use it for your baked potatoes, duck confit etc. :)
Carefully take all the meat of the bone. Using a hand blender or a mixer blend the meat with 1 tablespoon of fat, garlic, onion and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer into a jar and your conserve is ready :) It will keep well in the fridge.
