    Thanks bud. Something set in my camera is wrong. The meat is dark red in reality. That isn't done on the egg, it was sous vide

    I'm pretty sure this thread is the straw that broke the camel's back for me go ahead and pull the trigger on SV unit. Awesome cook. LS-- you ended up getting chef or creative polyscience?

  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 27,076
    Polyscience pro. I am so out of counterspace with her espresso machines and baking crap. I can just use a stockpot or whatever and it is great. That was the best duck I have ever had. New to it but would suggest you get into it. Those pics did not do it justice

    I've been reading and mentally getting into it for the last few months. I'm all over it now seeing duck like that.

  • Nice dude! Post that recipe please.

    Man, the duck was blood rare. There is some filter set on my camera that didn't show the true colour. I have been a duck fan all my life and I swear this was the best I ever had. It was so perfectly cooked it had the essence of a dove flavour. Go for it...Canadians don't lie

    What did you use to sear?
    ·
  • Man......My sous vide unit should be here in a couple of weeks......I can't wait!

  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 27,076
    I trimmed the membrane and excess fat, chopped it and rendered in a saute pan. Put the "cracklins" on the white bean compote and used the rendered fat in another pan to sear the breasts. Didn't seem worth it to light the egg for thirty seconds of use.

    yeah- spices, time and temp (and how did you handle the fat. My fat cap was too thick and chewy. I brined mine before the SV though

    I trimmed the fat right up tight to the meat. Copped it up and rendered the fat.and saved the browned skin. Used the fat as the base for the blueberry sauce.

    I scored the fat in a quarter inch crosshatch pattern. Seasoned it with Isle of Capri salt blend, a few crushed peppercorns and a bunch of crushed juniper berries. Then some thyme and garlic powder.image

    Looks good, haven't had duck since leaving Ontari-ari-ario 25 years ago, used to be part of every fall. 

    On your camera - check to see if there is a white balance, local photog claimed 90% of folks never use it, and once you get on to it, the colors come out pretty true.

  • I definitely will trim down next time. It was good but the fat was overpowereing

    Now where is that manual? I can't even shoot from the display.
