Duck confit at Costco!

Stumbled across this at Ajax Costco. 550g package of 2 duck legs for $15!
Imported from France too! Seems like a good price. The brand is called Sarrade.
Anyone seen this at other Costco locations?

  1. Thanks for sharing. I only tried it at CostCo in US never here. Though I saw some duck products at the Scarborough but wasn't impressed. I will keep an eye out for it on my next trip at my usual Wilson CostCo.

    1. I bought some from the Costco in Richmond Hill. Not the best I have had but good enough that I would buy it again. It comes packed with quite a bit of the duck fat which is a bonus if you want to fry up some potatoes with it!

      1. Thanks I just picked up a box today at the Wilson Costco. I am planning to use one tomorrow.Even if its not the best I can even use it in a salad or something.

          Well I am not impressed with this confit so far. It is way too salty. I agree with chocolatemama that there is a good amount of duck fat packed in with it so it can be used for cooking.

            In which section did you find this? Frozen or prepared meats? Didn't notice it when I was there last week.

            1. re: trane

              Its in the somewhat prepared section on the side where they keep some fresh pasta sauces and some ethnic items (sushi, Spanish omelette) Top Shelf!

                Weird! Because I noticed the Tortilla when I was there last. Ok, I will look for it in that area next time I'm over there.

                1. re: trane

                  Did anyone notice it at the Warden location ? Could not find it last week.

                  1. re: trane

                    Hmm Tortilas are in the bread section this is on the other end.

          2. In the Ajax whse it is in the open cooler with knockwurst, salami, prosciutto and fresh pasta.,

            1. I bought it on the weekend at the Wilson Costco near Yorkdale. It was oversalted for sure. I put it in a frying pan and found there was way too much duck fat to brown the skin -- it just seemed to be steaming in the fat. So, I took the duck out of the fat and put it in the oven to crisp up. It was okay, nothing fantastic. I would not buy it again. $16 for two duck legs and thighs (one large and one much smaller) is a lot of money if it doesn't taste great. For $6 I can buy the same amount of duck and make it myself in the oven and it tastes better. Just my opinion.

                Do you mind sharing where do you buy your duck legs as I haven't found it cheaper in the area I live (i.e. T&T and Longos downtown) + the duck fat.
                It is very salty so I am thinking of giving it a nice rinse before baking.

                1. re: elvisahmed

                  I buy duck legs at Longo's on Bayview north of Steeles and Longo's on Bathurst & Rutherford. Each package containing one leg and thigh is between $2.50 and $3.00! I don't make duck confit out of it, but I make delicious roast duck in the oven putting on some concentrated o.j., garlic powder, orange zest and baking it and pricking the skin every so often.

                  1. re: farmgirl1836

                    Wow that's a great price as the Longos downtown sells Duck Legs for 7-8$ a pop.

                2. re: farmgirl1836

                  You do realize this is duck confit and not about buying raw duck? I'd also like to know where you can buy 2 duck legs for $6?

                  1. re: sbug206

                    At the Asian Market near my home (central NJ) I can usually get a pair of duck legs for around $7.00 or so I make confit fairly often, so that I always have some on hand that's been under the fat for at least a couple of months.
