Truth be told, duck recipes are not among the more popular searches on our site. It is not so easy to find kosher duck, especially if you don't want to cook a whole bird. Most people don't know how to cook duck and don't want to spend the money only to ruin it at home. 

Now you can get duck any way you want it — duck breast, duck legs, duck bacon, and even duck rillette. Plus, we have recipes for every kind of duck you want to try. 

If you are still afraid to cook a duck, try duck rillette. Rillette is a preparation of meat similar to pâté and is best eaten as a spread on bread, so all the work is already done for you. However some delicious accompaniment like Balsamic Cherries won't hurt anyone. 

You can also get the flavor of duck in any of your foods with duck fat. Find the recipe you want to make below and get your duck from Pelleh Poultry, a boutique poultry supplier located in upstate New York. If your local kosher market doesn't have these duck products, ask them to order it from Pelleh Poultry.
