Magret Duck Breasts are plump, large Duck Breasts with rich, distinctive flavor. Prick or score the skin to more easily render off the fat before roasting or pan seared. Definitely save the extra fat as its highly prized as a cooking fat! Use as you would butter, bacon fat or oil.
Magret Ducks (aka Moulard) are the hybrid offspring of Pekin and Muscovy Ducks. They are larger cuts than Pekin Duck, with a much richer flavor and thick fat cover. Under the fat layer, they are actually on the lean side, so be sure not to overcook Magret Duck meat. These ducks have been air chilled which better preserves the bird's flavor, lets the meat absorb marinade better and is more environmentally friendly than the water chilling that is used for most poultry.
Ten ~1 lb split Breasts, ~10 lbs total. Origin: Quebec, Canada
