A very long time ago when I raised ducks hand over fist I made duck grease sugar cookies, and they did taste kind of ducky. I can see that in dumplings they'd be good though. Hmm. I just rendered the fat in the microwave and there's almost a quart of it! It was off a four year old tom that is going to be dinner here and a this years tom that went to a neighbor. The young tom didn't have that much in him, maybe 1/4 of what the old bird did.It's probably alike enough to chicken fat to use as schmatlz...in dumplings or as a butter substitute for cookies. It will be very rich!
I have at least 7 toms to do yet, so I'll have a lot of this before I'm done! Thanks for the idea for dumplings.
