Duck Fat Fried Potatoes

makes 8-10

4-5 lbs of medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

sea salt

1/2 cup of duck fat

1. Place potatoes into a large pot and add just enough water to cover them. Salt the water. Place over medium high heat and simmer until they are soft but still hold their shape, about 10-15 minutes, then drain.

2. Heat reserved duck fat in a large saucepan over medium high heat (if you are making duck confit, cook the potatoes in the same pan the legs have been sautéed in with the remaining fat left in the pan). Add potatoes and pan fry until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
