How to Render Duck Fat
So to the duck! Rendering the fat (which I'm sure none of those VS girls will ever enjoy) is easy. These pictures are taken after 5 minutes and then after 1 hour.
The great thing about rendering your own duck fat is that you end up with a batch of cracklings - delicious to snack on, sprinkled with salt.
Take the skin and fat from one duck, avoiding the tail and neck areas. I actually threw in the entire carcass. I removed it when I thought the fat from it was probably melted into the pot.
Cut the skin and fat into medium sized pieces and put them into a heavy bottomed pot or pan. Add water to cover and simmer over medium heat until all the water has evaporated and the skin pieces are crisp and have released all their fat. That may take about 2 hours. Be careful not to burn the fat.
