I have heard people RAVE about duck fat fries, before I ever went paleo. After browsing through the threads on here, I found out that is paleo "approved" so to speak. I was wondering where I can get it? Is it sold in grocery stores or do I have to hit a specialty store??

I haven't made any for a while, but I bought a duck a week ago and am getting ready to do it again. I strip the duck of the breasts and leg/thighs with a sharp fillet knife to cook separately. I then roast the carcass, giblets and wings and any fatty scraps at 400F for 1-2 hours, draining off the fat as it renders. A 5 lb duck makes about a cup of fat, plus cooked meaty bits from the carcass, roasted giblets for gravy, and tasty duck skin crisps.

It's quite widely available in the UK in supermarkets. Goose fat is a good alternative!

It can be bought on Amazon, and larger Whole Foods stores sometimes sell it. Alternatively, ethnic food stores that sell duck might sell it, or you can render it from a whole duck yourself.

I saw rendered duck fat at Whole Foods in the freezer case with organ meat and soup bones and chicken backs
