I use to make this product, commercially, several years ago. I would suggest that you have cured it much too long and the product is going to be too salty. It is possible to soak it in cool water to extract the excess salt. . . . drying the will take a day or two longer. It may end up being an OK product to use, but will not have the flavor of a magret cured for 24 hours only. I wouldn't through them away, but I would start a fresh batch for best quality. Save these first batch for yourself to enjoy.
