Ducks and dogs

Anna with duck and Lucy in background

We retired our first duck today along with some chickens.

Lucy likes to patiently wait till Anna throws her the heart and liver. Lucy also enjoys licking up the blood that collects in a cake pan, but she turned her nose up at the duck blood and organs.

I look forward to your first duck dinner. I've always heard it was hard to cook duck in a tasty manner. Lots of fat, etc. I'm sure you're up to the job!!!

In my opinion duck organs are far tastier than chicken.

I'd recommend marinating the hearts in a little balsamic, garlic, and salt, then grilling them or searing them on a cast iron pan.

The livers can be sauteed with onion and butter!
