Where to buy duck fat

Hi, I want to make a lot of duck confit and have it gnaw on during the winter. Therefore I need a decent amount of duck fat. Any ideas where to buy, or order a small bucket of duck fat. The 7 oz. d'artangnan duck fat will cost me so much, that I might as well just buy their duck confit.

    1. You could see if you can find Goose Fat - comes in much larger tins and is cheaper than duck fat - don't have a Boston rec. for you though.

      1. i just bought a quart of it at whole foods on cambridge street. it was in the frozen section. I would call first and if they don't have it, i am sure they can bring it in from the commisary.

        if you're in a pinch, you can always make confit with a non-flavored oil like canola or veg. not ideal, but the rub should flavor it enough.

        1. Savenor's usually has plenty. It's a great stop.

            Older thread, but I just had a similar need - Mayflower Poultry can order it... but its by the case, so you'd better need or be able to use a good amount of it or have some friends you can divvy it up with..

              Try for goose legs and fat (2 # tub is about $5 + shipping). I bought some legs and a tub for confit, which is nestled in the back of my fridge. It does keep pretty well, and is sooo lovely for roast potatoes.
