Duck Fat & Duck Drumettes

So I bought some duck drumettes and duck fat today. I have never eaten duck so this will be a new experience. Any ideas? Can I treat the duck drumettes the way I would chicken wing drumettes? What are some good ways to use this duck fat?
Thanks

I love duck fat to cook with It makes things extra crispy! I usually buy Roguie rendered duck fat brand because it's organic and very clean tasting and smelling.

I'd make confit! Do a web search for "confit duck legs" - you'll find plenty, and they're low-carb. AND they're yummy!

Thanks for the suggestion Charski. Well I love the duck fat but not a fan of the duck meat. Tasted similar chicken thighs to me and I don't like chicken thighs. I love the duck fat though! While the drumettes were in the oven, I tossed in some radishes and celery root. I read that cooking potatoes in duck fat is amazing. I figured I'd try it with a potato sub to see how that would work. The Celery Root was OK, nothing spectacular but OMG, I have a new favorite LC food. The radishes were FANTASTIC! I've done radishes as home fries or oven roasted before but OMG, cooking it in the duck fat took it to another level. Wonder what other veggie would be awesome in this fat. Will be experimenting over the next few days before I go back to work.

I just looked up the Roguie, I've never seen it in stores. I bought this from a local place that has their own in house butcher so it was raw fat so I had to render it . It didn't take a long time though. Its good stuff. Glad I found it.

Try sauteing asparagus (fresh) or broccoli in duck fat. It's really good
