Is it safe to air cure duck legs for 3 days for duck confit? My recipe says to cure for "up to" 3 days. Most recipes suggest no longer than 2!
I let my duck confit cure for 3 days now in the fridge, but I am concerned about the safety. It smells strong-- a little gamey. Is that just the curing process or did I go too long. I am referring to the recipe by Melissa clark in "Dinner in an Instant".
