Physical Description: Each package comes with 4 breasts weighing Approximately 1.5-2.0 lbs. The Muscovy Hen Duck breast is sometimes known as the flying filet because of it’s incredible tenderness and flavor that – when cooked right – is reminiscent of a beef filet mignon. Muscovy Duck has the the most flavorful meat of duck all breeds and is typically what you will find in fine dining restaurants.
Cooking: The key with duck is to cook it correctly, and it’s not difficult to do. Use the right technique and in no time you have an incredible meal that rivals a filet mignon (and for a fraction of the price). You’ll want to render the fat out slowly, creating a deliciously crispy and golden brown skin. When prepared improperly, the fat will cook inside the skin creating an undesirable rubbery texture. If you follow the golden rule of rendering the fat first when cooking duck, you’ll end up with a delicious meal every time. Another plus side of rendering duck fat is that it’s an absolute dream to cook other foods in. Simply pour the cooled fat out of the pan and save it for up to two weeks in a sealed jar in the refrigerator. See this recipe more:
Nutrition: Duck is great for people who are looking for higher fat content in their diets. It is very high in the amino acid glycine – which the body uses for skin health and wound healing. Duck is also very high in protein with 19 grams in every 3.5 oz serving.
Farming Practice: Our ducks joyously roam spacious growing houses with hands-on care from on-site veterinarians. This ensures that every duck is raised in the best possible conditions every step of the way from the hatchery, growing houses, laying houses and processing plant.
