After an amazing Christmas break with our family, we returned home feeling relaxed, refreshed and looking forward to an additional mini break at home.
Unfortunately that feeling vanished very soon! Gary discovered that I hadn’t closed the freezer door properly prior to our departure and everything had begun to defrost!
First job, stock take, make a list of everything that could be salvaged, dispose of what couldn’t, and then work out what to do with a freezer full of meat, seafood and poultry!
Idea’s began to form as I worked through it all, most would have to be cooked and then could be re-frozen. I realised that I could also, smoke and cure a little as well.
I had duck marylands, I would do Confit Duck and then freeze ready for use. There was one duck breast, it would be cured, airdried and then sliced/diced and frozen.
