Cooking Term: Confit

Well, we’ve had quite a week, here in Tennessee! What a great snow! So, instead of blogging, I’ve been goofing off with my best friends. Life is awesome.

But, it’s time to get back to it. How about another cooking term?

Today’s cooking term is: Confit.

Here is a picture of garlic confit, from saveur.com.

According to Merriam-Webster.com:

Confit (noun)

con·fit \kōn-ˈfē, kȯn-, kän-\

1. meat (as goose, duck, or pork) that has been cooked and preserved in its own fat

2. a garnish usually made from fruit or vegetables that are cooked until tender in a seasoned liquid
