boil the fat/skin to get the golden fat for all things good, then get rid of the water, nothing but fat left.

then once the carcass has been broken down, make duck stock with it. then we use this to make a duck mushroom risotto.

love ducks.

Confit the legs, cure the breasts, consommé the rest. If you need detailed recipes shoot me a PM.

Cider Braised legs/thighs are also great if the whole confit thing is off the table. .. But I'd definitely brine the whole bird at Least 12 hours before doing Anything.
