MSP: Duck Fat
I need to purchase duck fat or goose fat in a relatively large quantity: approx one quart/ 2lbs. I can render it myself if necessary...any ideas as to where I could get this? Preferably if there were a local farm that I could get it from and render myself, it would be ideal.
I know Surdyk's and Byerly's sell duck fat. I usually buy some around the holidays to make crispy, crunchy oven fried potatoes. I have not bought quite as much as you are looking for. I would recommend that you call your order ahead and they can set it aside for you. I suspect Clancey's will have some too- if they do, I'll buy from them this year.
Just out of curiosity what will you be making with it?
Let me know what you find - I couldn't locate anything last year. But I was looking for a smaller amount and never returned to Surdyk's closer to the holidays.
