Hubs and I are duck fat newbies but since being introduced to it we are now duck fat aficionados. I don't think we'll ever do roasted or fried potatoes without it again. Because it already is available in a jarred form, I took that shortcut rather than the submitter's direction to use the actual duck skin and fat (truly, I don't know where I would have gotten my hands on that anyway). As I knew they would be, these potatoes were out of this world delicious - not so much because of the recipe, but because of the duck fat itself. I will say that cutting the potatoes in such small chunks as directed in this recipe, guarantees that much more duck fat flavored crispiness. Using a cast iron skillet helped that along too. I used leeks as one of the suggested alternatives to the green garlic (don’t know where I’d find that either) and just as I suspected, the level of heat required to brown the potatoes was too high for the leeks, and they tended to burn. I ended up discarding them. As for these potatoes, fried in duck fat? Ohhhh, yeah.
