Autumn is setting in and we feel the need for warm nourishing food.
A truly traditional French meal is confit de canard. It's also about the only time you buy French food in a tin.
The duck meat is preserved in it's own fat and canned. All we have to do is open the tin.
Confit de canard is best accompanied by sautéed potatoes. Cut into small cubes or thin slices the potatoes are baked in the oven or fried in a pan using the fat from the duck. Believe me this is delicious. We also add green beans finished off in butter, garlic and parsley.
