Eating Confit de Canard

How Long Can I Keep My Confit de Canard?

You can keep your confit de canard tins for longer than you think…

I’m afraid that I’ve been slow, lazy and negligent – only three deadly sins that I’m admitting to today… I meant to tell you about this back in July.

Ed wrote to me all that time ago asking how long he could keep his jar of duck confit (that he’d had from elsewhere I’m sorry to say – we don’t sell jars, delivery and all that…)   I did reply, some of which is paraphrased but it was after the dinner in question.  By the time I replied, he’d either eaten it (which I’m sure was OK) or bought something else because he wanted it for that evening.

I said to Ed that eating it would be fine – provided that the jar was still sealed. I added (with a bit of sales patter)  “The tins we buy usually have about 3 or 4 years on them (currently 2015 and 2016). [a] they’re in tins and [b] the fat preserves the duck and makes the duck inpenetratable to bacteria. That’s the joy of confit de canard in tins.”

I also suggested that “Next time you can get a tin from us. Are you planning any dinners in 2015/16?”

So if you are planning ahead why not stock up with some of our confit duck?  It lasts ~ I think the tins we have now are all 2016!  Pass my diary…

 

August Rush for Confit de Canard?

Duck Confit de Canard Boost From Hols…

We’re in France in August? Are you? Were you? Or did a friend tell you about their confit de canard experience?

Will we be seeing a rush in orders following summer holidays where people are trying confit de canard for the first time or being reminded of how much they love this gourmet meal from a tin!

We will be stocking up in August for the rush at Confit de Canard UK. Late august/September is when we get our big confit de canard pangs too …

Confit de Canard Dreams

I’m just setting up this Confit de Canard website and I’m dreaming of my favourite meal already.  It’s not just our lucky French~duck~delight shoppers who will benefit from this website and it’s offerings of confit de canard (and gesiers and the rest) because I will too.  I’ll have to sample and test and make sure of the quality. Shame…
