Free-range duck, seasoned, cured and slow cooked so it's meltingly tender - no wonder this classic dish is so popular. A speciality of France, this generously sized duck leg is cooked in its own fat using a centuries-old artisan method and takes just a few minutes to heat through for a satisfying meal anytime. The lean dark meat has a rich, savoury flavour, and it's so tender it falls off the bone. Pan-fry for the crispiest skin - delicious!

Cooking methods:

Pan Frying:
Heat a frying pan over a low heat and sauté the legs, skin side down, with a little of the fat, until the skin is crisp, golden and heated through.

Preheat oven to 200ºC/ Fan180ºC/Gas 6. Lift the duck legs out of the fat wipe off most of the excess with kitchen paper. Place skin-side up on a rack in a roasting tin and roast for 15-20 minutes, until the skin is crisp and golden and the meat has heated through.

Chef's Tip:
For extra crispy skin, flash the heated duck legs under a hot grill, skin side up, watching carefully at all times. Keep the remaining duck fat and use later, in small amounts, to make gorgeous sautéed food.

The best confit of duck which I've had outside of France.
Have bought these several times before. One of our favorites for supper with potatoes cooked in duck fat with a little sliced garlic and green beans or mushrooms. Never without them in the freezer.
The flavour in this duck is incredible and I have been getting it for years now and the flavour has been consistent.
Generous portions and so tasty. There's usually enough from each leg to put into a delicious stir fry the next day.
Disappointed. The meat was very tender and we were able to cook it within the time frame you described, but I am afraid that for our taste, the comfit duck legs were far far too salty. I am a person who is usually criticised for always adding extra salt to my meals when others don't see the need,... Read More. Thanks for your comment.

Large Duck legs very tasty and plenty of meat well worth the price
One of my favourites. In addition to serving them whole, I have removed the meat from the bone and added to casseroles and pies for extra flavour
Any other duck legs we have had do not match the quality of Donald Russell.
They are extremely tender and tasty.
