Where to buy Duck Fat

ThisGuyRy Nov 26, 2013 10:49 PM

Looking to procure duck fat without actually rendering it myself so I can attempt a thanksgiving recipe that calls for it. Anybody know where I can find some and roughly how much it costs?

      Treasure Island and some Whole Foods stores carry them in the freezer aisle

            Gene's Sausage Shop on Lincoln sells goose lard $3.99/lb in containers just over 1 lb.

              Paulina Meat Market this week had both duck and goose fat in the refrigerator section. I have also bought duck fat at Gene's, as mentioned above, and I believe at Olympia Meat Packers. I know I bought duck bacon at Olympia, and it was delicious!

                How long does it keep refrigerated?

                It seems to me I remember frozen schmaltz so you must be able to freeze it.

              Whole Foods in Lincoln Park (Kingsbury) has duck fat, no frozen, and plenty of it.
