We've partnered with Fatworks to provide you with this very special product. Our duckies are sourced from a small family farm and are totally pasture raised. This means they roam around outside while snacking on goodies like grasses, worms and bugs; and the topper is that their supplemental feed is non-GMO. As anyone who has had this amazing stuff knows, raising ducks on a pasture makes for a healthier bird with a richer, more complex and delicious tasting fat.
In addition to our higher quality sourcing, what separates Fatworks Duck Fat is our small batch, kettle rendering and advanced fine-filtering system.
Cooking with our Duck Fat is also a great way to make confit style dishes, roasted veggies and savory pies. You can even spread it on a "quacker" with a little sea salt.
One reason the French are thinner? Duck fat!
French paradox is the term given to the fact that the French are thinner, with a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease than Americans, even though they enjoy a diet full of animal fats and butter.*
In the United States, 315 of every 100,000 middle-aged men die of heart attacks each year. In France, the rate is less than half that number. But in the Gascony region of France, where goose and duck fat, organs and meats are diet staples, the rate is only 80 per 100,000, according to the World Health Organization's Multinational Monitoring of Trends and Determinants. That's a mere 25% of the heart attack deaths seen in the U.S.
As opposed to pure, pasture-raised duck fat, vegetable oils and other highly processed cooking fats are treated with chemicals, as well as bleached, deodorized and refined.
