Author Notes: I have come across this odd part many a time during childhood vacations in south-east France, however I did not know its proper Danish name until very recently (the proper Danish term would be 'kråse'). But that does not matter really, because they are so delicious. In fact I would argue that anything that has been slowly cooked in its own fat is going to be simply delicious. - Mettch
- 2.2 pounds fresh duck gizzards
- 2.2 pounds duck fat
- 1 handful coarse salt
- 3 pieces garlic cloves
- 1 piece dried laurel
- 1 piece thyme branch
- Mix gizzards with the coarse salt and let it marinate for 12 hours in the refridgerator.
- Rince the gizzards thoroughly and make sure they are dry thereafter.
- Heat the duck fat in a large pot. Then add the gizzards.
- Add garlic cloves, laurel and thyme to a tea pouch, and add this to the pot.
- Simmer for at least one hour.
- Make sure the gizzards are fully cooked before you let them cool.
- The gizzards can be stored in the refrigerator (covered with grease and protected the air) for up to 2 weeks.
- Before eating, heat them up in a pan for 4 to 5 minutes. They go extremely well with a crisp salad in a light vinaigrette. This time I served them with potatoes in a basil pesto as well.
