I read that the average american consumes 80 pounds of chicken a year and maybe 0.35 pounds of duck. When I've talked with people up here in the Michigan Upper Peninsula I've heard the following comments: 1) I've never had a duck dinner that I liked. 2) My mom told us she would never cook duck, and when we brought one home from hunting we had to throw it out. 3) Anybody who would eat duck would suck !@$#. 4) They don't sell duck up here. 5) All we eat is venison and fish. So, what I've been doing lately is making people free duck dinners to go. I saute a breast and leg, along with cubed potatoes and vegetables fried in duck fat, put it on a plastic plate convered in tin foil, and drop it off to a hestitant customer. Seems to be working, because word at the local bars is that people are taking a more positive attitude towards it. Now they say duck is good. Since I sell my duck at $2 per pound dressed, I expect an increase in sales for next year. Any other duck producers facing negative public opinion?
