I had an impromptu dinner with friends this weekend. People that I had not seen in ages. I had already planned to try something different, the seeming theme to these spring and summer months, so I purchased some duck breasts from the local butcher. I don’t know if it was the wine, the company, or the fact that I had successfully grilled duck, something I have never done before, but a great time was had by all.
If purchased frozen, or frozen before you’re prepared to cook, remember to thaw the selected duck meat before cooking. Duck should not be thawed on the counter, but in the refrigerator. Breasts will thaw over night, a whole bird could take up to two days. To speed up the thawing process, you can do something similar to thawing a whole bird. Submerge in a bucket of cold water, changing the water every 30 minutes until the bird is thawed.
When ready to cook the duck, remember to pat dry with paper towel before cooking.

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
