Duck! (post #25211)

Actually duck sausage. Does anyone have a good T&T recipe, or a book (or URL) to recommend? I'm looking particularly for a good, salami-type duck sausage

Now I don't know how happy you will be with this recipe because it makes 10 lbs. Pare it down, perhaps, or make the full quantity and freeze some...just think you can throw a few on the BBQ.

i The New Professional Chef,
one of the 3 books my S.O. had before my arrival.

c Duck Sausage

c 8 Oz. Shallots, chopped fine
c 1 Oz. Butter
c 1 Oz. Garlic, minced
c 24 Oz. Red Wine
c 6 lb. Duck Meat
c 3 lb. Fatback
c 1 tsp. Fresh Thyme, chopped
c 2 Tblsp. Fresh Sage, chopped
c 4 Tblsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped
c 1 Tblsp. Pepper, coarsely ground
c 3/8 Oz. Curing Salt
c 2 Oz. Salt
c 3/4 ounce Dextrose
c Sheep Casing (as needed)

Saute the shallots in butter...Add the garlic and red wine; reduce it until almost all the liquid is gone, to a syrup consistency. Grind the meat and fatback, using a fine die. Combine the meat, fat, shallot/garlic mixture, and spices and mix them together thoroughly.
i (At this point, I would saute a small quantity of it to test for seasoning, adjusting if necessary.)
Stuff the mixture into the sheep casing. Twist or tie it off at 4 to 5 inch intervals. Alternatively, you can form into patties. If not using right away, freeze on a cookie sheet, then transfer to a ziplock bag, store in freezer.

c (*) (*) (*)

You ask for a "salami" type sausage...Salami is dried. As far as drying duck sausage, I don't know what a safe procedure is, so you may have to chase that info down on a website for preserving...or one of our "Fellow Foodies" may know of a T&T procedure for curing sausage.

Thanks, Chiff -- you're right, that is quite a quantity of sausage! But it sounds *so* good! I'll make about half a batch.
