  • It really does taste good,, I had some once with a brie melted on top of it,, it doesn't taste like bacon fat, more chicken like. I don't think I would make it for dinner tonight though,, here you go Billy--duck fat and jelly,, just like Grandma used to make,, LOL!

  • I'm a veggie, so I wouldn't eat it. But for families who keep kosher, rendered duck, goose and chicken fat were a substitute for butter (we cannot mix milk and meat.) This was in the days before margarine or a lot of cooking oils. FIL used to talk about how his mother would do a goose every once in a while so they could have the fat for cooking meat dishes.

  • My mom grew up on "schmaltz on toast," so while it doesn't appeal to me, I'm not grossed out.

  • That's gross. Although when you think about it, I suppose it isn't really any nastier than butter.

  • Cold fat? Yuck, not for me. But I would keep it and use it for cooking, must give great flavor. Duck schmaltz!
