Where's the Duck Fat?

TommyJayDee Feb 7, 2011 08:16 AM

Any great deals on Duck Fat around Boston or the North Shore? Not sure how much I need but I need enough to cook french fries for 15 people in a few days.

If you have an appx. price, that will be helpful.

      If I remember correctly Cardullo's in Harvard Square carries duck fat. No sure on what the price is though.

        Savenor's (at least the one in Cambridge ) has it, but I don't know the price.

          I think it was $5 a pint last time I got some there. They also have goose fat but it was higher - maybe $10 a pint?

            I bought duck fat at Savenors in Cambridge last month and while I don't remember specifically, BobB's price sounds just about right. I called ahead and ordered a quart when I needed it.

          I think Dave's Fresh Pasta just started carrying it. No idea on price.

            The Meat House in Coolidge Corner has it at a very reasonable price in large deli containers.

              Savenors. Another possibility is to roast a duck and save the fat. I've got a pint in my fridge from roasting a bird last week.

                  We had a big duck fat fry up last week and cooked everything from duck legs to sweet potato gaufrette to pork tenderloin. It was goo-oood!
