CONFIT

One of the oldest ways to preserve food, confit is a flavorful way to conserve a variety of foods. Most notably, confit de canard- duck confit – is made by salting and poaching duck legs in its own fat. Similar to fruit preserves, the poached meat is cooled and often transferred to a jar for canning. The meat is immersed in its own fat and sealed. Once sealed, the confit can last for months. The duck’s fat can be used for sautéing vegetables. The fat  adds great flavor to roasted potatoes. Confit is not limited to meats, however. You can also enjoy fruit and vegetable confit.  The above image shows a dish served with a garlic confit.

Raised in the Bronx; spending the majority of my days in the Midtown section of Manhattan, I have a fabulous addiction to life in New York City. I'm a lifestyle writer and social blogger. I enjoy traveling and photographing foods, landscapes, and people in their natural element. I also enjoy attending parades and street festivals in New York City; capturing the spirit and positive energy on video and in photographs. I style people's lives by offering them tips on fashion, food & wine, dining & entertaining, arts & culture, and more!
