We have whole duck for sale and wanted to help our customers be assured that breaking down a whole duck is not that difficult to do! This video is a step by step tutorial to help you do that.
We are sympathetic to our friends who do not eat animals and we do not want to be offensive in anyway, but this question has come up several times at market over the years. Some people would like to buy a whole duck or chicken but are unsure how to cook it other than putting the entire thing in the oven! It’s actually pretty simple and once you get chicken or duck down, pretty much all birds are the same.
You do need a good knife, one that is sharp and not too stiff. The knife used is this video was purchased at a local popular grocery store for less than $10 and worked perfectly. One thing that people often worry about is having to get through the bones of the bird. In this video, you’ll see that you do not necessarily have to saw through any bone.
A bird, a knife, a cutting board, and some patience and you’ll be a butcher in no time.
We plan on releasing some more videos as we get them on how to use this very same duck for the following recipes:
Crispy Skinned Duck Breast
Duck Liver Mousse
The more we can help you use these products the better for both of us!
If you are reading this and you have a recipe that you use feel free to post in on social media and tag us. We love to know how you use what we’re growing and it helps to pass it along.
Thanks for reading and thanks for watching!
