Have you every heard of a "Duck Drummy"? We hadn't until we raised ducks and discovered some of the delicious ways that they can be eaten. A Duck Drummy is the leg and thigh of a duck, sans skin. Cooked well it is incredibly delicious. Last night we enjoyed some from our ducks that were raised here at Groundworks Farm this fall and it was so good that I felt a need to share. A great meal for a cold winter night.
Feeds 4 Hungry Folks
8 legs and thighs duck meat, skinned
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Duck Fat
1/4 cup flour
1 cup tomato juice
salt and pepper to taste
1. Prepare the sauce by combining the Maple Syrup, Duck Fat and Flour in a large pot over medium heat. Stir until mixture thickens. Add a splash of water so it does not burn.
2. Place Duck Drummies in the pan and add tomato juice. Cover and heat 25 minutes.
3. Remove over and flip drummies, making sure that they get enough exposure to the bottom of the pan.
4. Cook until most of the liquid is gone and the drummies have a golden glaze to them.
5. Serve immediately with just about anything. The bottom of the pan is sure to become a dipping spot for some warm bread.
