We picked up a duckling at Aldi. Normally, duckling is a bit too pricey for my blood, but this one was reasonable. Greg wanted to smoke the duck, but I thought we should deep fry it like we’ve done turkeys in the past. I don’t know what it is about deep frying but the meat just falls off the bone.

Do you ever have duck for dinner? How do you like to prepare it?

  1. I wondered where you got the duck; I didn’t think you had any on your homestead. I had duck years ago, in my youth; younger than 7 years old because I remember having it over my grandmother’s house and then we moved to California (from Pennsylvania) when I was 7 and never was back in my grandmother’s house. So I know I was quite young when I had it. I remember really liking it. I haven’t had any since. We are still in the process of thinning out the things in our freezer. Makes for some odd meals some days, but always tasty!
