The ducks turned out delicious.

I just tasted a bit of the duck and it came out delicious. I am not sure if I will cook it again though. The meat was very tough and I had to have it boiling for hours. I am not acostumed to spending that amount of gas in a single meal. Leticia has to go to the doctor tomorrow, so I will wait until she comes back to eat it. I added pineapple, red wine and pineapple syrup (with no sugar added). I think that I´ll cook some mashed potato as a side dish This is something that I´ve never done in my life. I´m looking forward to taste it.

Usually I've had duck roasted. It gets an amazing crispy skin. I know simmered duck can also be quite good

I have had roasted duck in good chinese restaurants, but thet were big, farm raised birds.

I have had baked duck once and it was pretty good, a lot of fat though. The gourmet thing in the US is to cook with duck fat. It sounds awful.

I actually like cooking with duck fat, especially roasting vegetables!

@spiderdust I heard about it on America's Test Kitchen too. It just seems like such a strange concept. Do you buy the duck fat or get it from slaughtering and cooking the duck?

@JamesHxstatic I bought the duck fat, although if I had purchased and roasted a duck, I'd probably render some of the fat off of it. I don't think it's any different than cooking with bacon fat, and that's pretty common in some areas of the country.
