Sources for duck breasts in Worcester County?
Seems like the major markets have whole frozen duck - so solid they could be used as wheel chocks and would take a day + to thaw - but fresh /refrigerated duck harder to come by. Trader Joes? Whole Foods? Haven't been in a while but would appreciate recommendations. I am in southern Worcester, but will drive to central and northern areas if the stuff is top drawer.
Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I've gotten non frozen duck breast at Hannafords and Shaw's from:
http://www.mapleleaffarms.com/160 this link will take you to the retail part of their website. I was trying to remember the brand, I knew it came in a small brown box. I did a search in duck suppliers and this was the one I was thinking about.
I only cook it for someone, I don't eat it, but never had any complaints. These are not huge portions, but okay with some good sides.
However when I did my google search, after reading about the farms, not sure I'll be buying duck too soon again.
I'll post that link, just be prepared for reading some not too kind words about duck supply houses.
http://www.vivausa.org/campaigns/duck... Not sure who this link is actually from, I had to stop reading it, as it doesn't take much to make me queasy sometimes. You may be able to get through it without any problems. It also had a list of retailers who had Maple Leaf and other brands..
