i had my butcher cut up 2 ducks for me for 2 dinners, this is what i made with the trimmings, courtesy of emeril. cooking time doesn't reflect the fact that you should make this a day ahead, refrigerate overnight,and skim the fat before using or freezing, just like chicken soup. use this as you would any stock.
