Duck Magret & Confit in Vancouver or the Tri-Cities
I am desperately seeking frozen Duck Magret and Duck Leg Confit (not too salty) to buy - about a dozen of each. Where in the Tri-Cities (Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam), Vancouver, or, if I must, Richmond would I be able to find good quality and not too salty confit!??
Food on the brain:
I am in Edmonton, so definitely not the Tri-Cities [I usually associate that term with the Yakima Valley] but when I have a hankering for either, I go to my local Save-On-Foods.
From time to time, they have the Brome Lake, Quebec brand of frozen confit as well as magret. They are also supposed to have their sausage and Duck Pot Pie but I have yet to actually see them in the store.
If they stock them in Alberta, perhaps BC as well
Also, Oyama in Granville Island makes a very nice Duck leg confit, but it is on the salty side.
Not sure if they have Magret (Moulard) duck as well, but Tenderland sells Muscovy duck breasts that can be a substitute. Jackson's Poultry in GI may have either/both, but I don't know for sure.
I haven't tried it yet but I did notice this weekend that the Gourmet Warehouse on East Hastings as Duck Confit and Magret in their refrigerated case as the back. Might be closer to you than treking out to Granville Island.
Thank you all! Tomorrow and the day after are my days to go shopping - I will definitely try Hills - they look like they have lots of yummies. I will also check out T&T for the legs. If I can find them, I much prefer to confit them myself, as I have a LOT of rendered duck fat. I just can rarely find legs only. Heading to Gourmet Warehouse over the next 2 days as well, so will see what they have.
