Does anyone know where I might be able to find a kosher duck? I've looked at Sunset Foods up in Highland Park and a couple small markets on Dempster in Skokie but pretty much everyone just sells the Maple Farms ducks. I know I can find them online but would like to save myself the shipping costs. Thanks in advance for any help.
Definitely Romanian Kosher will have them - that is where I bought my last one and to warn you they will be frozen - you might also try Hungarian Kosher Supermarket in Skokie or Moshe’s New York Kosher on Devon in Rogers Park
Forgot to add links to the spots I mentioned and threeother spots - Jewel on Howard in Evanston, Kosher Korner in the Garden Fresh Market in Northbrook and Schaevitz across the street form Sunset Foods in Highland Park
2485 Howard St, Evanston, IL 60202
Garden Fresh Market
275 Skokie Blvd, Northbrook, IL
Romanian Kosher Sausage Co
7200 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60626
Hungarian Kosher Foods
4020 Oakton St, Skokie, IL
New York Kosher Sausage Shop
2900 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL
All of these places will be selling Empire frozen ducks. The problem is that they have been frozen for who knows how long. Hungarian Kosher Supermarket on Oakton sells organic frozen kosher chicken, but I don't think I have ever seen duck there. If you really care about quality, you need to order from Aaron's Kosher Meats in NY. You can get whole ducks, breasts, or leg quarters. It is expensive but the taste is a huge difference.
This is good information to know even for me. I've been wanting to cook duck for the longest time. Thanks for the information!
