Pita Toast With Roasted Garlic And Caramelized Onion Jam, Duck Confit, And Truffled Honey Ingredients (serves 4) 1 package of pita rounds 4 duck thighs 1/3 c kosher salt 1/4 c granulated sugar zest of 1 orange hand full of thyme 1/2 gallon canola oil 1 large white onion 3 heads of garlic 1/4 c chives chopped 3 tbsp honey 1 tbsp truffle oil salt and pepper to taste Method This recipe requires you to quick cure the duck. This will need to be done a day in advance. Begin by mixing the salt, sugar, thyme, and orange zest. Rub the duck with the mixture and set it in the refrigerator overnight. When you are ready to confit the duck, set your oven to 275 degrees and heat the canola oil

over low heat on the stove in a three to four inch deep oven friendly frying pan. Rinse the excess rub off the duck thighs. Pat them dry and place them in the warm oil with a few sprigs of thyme and an orange peel. Allow them to cook in the oven at 275 degrees for about four and a half hours. While the duck is cooking, wrap the heads of garlic in tin foil and drizzle each with a bit of oil. Roast in the oven next to the duck for about an hour. Slice the white onion thin and caramelize them over medium high heat in a large sautĂŠ pan. When the garlic is done remove it from the oven and squeeze the roasted garlic from the skins. Place the caramelized onions and roasted garlic together in a food processor and pulse a few times until incorporated. When it has cooled in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, mix the chives into the resulting jam. When

the duck is ready and falling off the bone carefully remove the thighs from the oil and set them aside to cool. When they are cool enough to handle, assemble the dish. Start by spreading a generous portion of onion jam over each pita round. Pick the duck meat with your fingers and place around the center of each pita. Bake the pitas at 400 degrees for seven minutes. Mix together the honey and truffle oil with a spoon and drizzle over each pita as it comes out of the oven. Enjoy!
