1
Mix the salt, sugar and thyme and cover the duck legs. Place the covered duck legs on a tray, cover with cling film and allow to cure for 12 hours. Once cured, remove and rinse off the curing mix then pat dry
  • 2 duck legs
  • 50g of sea salt
  • 12g of caster sugar
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
2
Place the duck legs in a deep saucepan and cover with the duck fat. Bring to a gentle simmer for approximately 1 hour - the meat should be loose but not falling off the bone. Remove from the pan and drain on absorbent kitchen towel
  • 300g of duck fat
3
Add a small dollop of duck fat to a heavy based saucepan. Place over a medium heat and sweat off the onion, carrot, celery and garlic until soft
  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 celery stick
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 50g of duck fat
4
In a separate pan, cover the soaked beans in cold water and add the chopped streaky bacon. Bring to a rolling boil until the beans are tender - this should take around 20 minutes. Strain off the water and add the beans and bacon to the saucepan containing the softened vegetables
  • 300g of dried white haricot beans
  • 100g of smoked streaky bacon slices
5
Add the chopped tomatoes and the parsley and bring to a gentle simmer. Add 1 pint of water and the sliced hogs pudding. Place into a casserole pot and into a preheated oven at 160˚C/gas mark 3 for up to 90 minutes
  • 3 plum tomatoes
  • 25g of parsley
6
Once the beans are soft and fluffy and the water is starchy and thickened, add the duck legs into the pot and cover with the cassoulet mix. Cook for a further 20 minutes to heat through
7
Meanwhile, to prepare the granola, warm the duck fat in a non-stick pan and add all ingredients and gently toast
  • 15g of duck fat
  • 75g of hazelnuts
  • 100g of linseed
  • 75g of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 12g of sugar
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 25g of dried kibbled onion
8
Place onto a flat oven tray and bake on a low heat at 120˚C/gas mark 1/2 for 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes to ensure it covers evenly to a light brown finish. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and store in a air-tight container until ready to use
9
Remove the cassoulet from the oven. Serve into individual bowls and garnish with the granola. Serve immediately
