Tasty Tuesday- Are the GIZZARDS WIZARDS ready?

Hoomans eat duck gizzards like this: http://honest-food.net/2011/03/02/gizzard-confit-with-wild-mushrooms/.

Ok, some hoomans. My daddy is NOT one of those humans.  He is not into "parts".

As a wise man used to say "Too bad for him, great for me!"

My house smells delicious. Seriously. Ever our repairman asked what delicious concoction was cooking.{momma put a spring of rosemary in the back of the dehydrator- it makes everything smells delicious}

Of course, we sort of deflated his interest when momma told him "Gizzards wizards".  :) again ..."Too bad for him, great for me!"

Here is the deal.  Organ meat is very good for us four leggeds. Accounting for allergies and such, we found that JD can eat duck. So, Of course, momma got trays of duck gizzards.

The preparation that we like is simple and delicious.

While partly frozen,  as a small block momma slices the gizzards. Use a serrated knife.  It make the job easier and faster.

Quick rinse in the sink to get rid of any ice, let drain, melt 1 tablespoon of  organic coconut oil
and coat the slices. Put the slices in your dehydrator and set for 5-7 hours at highest setting. Check after 5, adjust time as needed.

Look, you do not want to completely dehydrate the gizzards.  You want them "cooked"- This recipe is a modified "confit". A confit is usually cooked slowly in fat.  This is a leaner rif on that.  That is why we add the coconut oil.

This is what the slices should look like when they come out of the temple of yumminess- aka Excalibur, the dehydrator:

That's moi.  I smelled something, I decided to join the momma in the kitchen... My mouth is leaking...
