Duck and Pork Pātė Recipe
Here you will find a great Duck and Pork Pātē
This recipe has originated here in the Charente, as it was given to me by my wonderful french neighbour Madeleine, who was born here in the Charente and as far as I know has never really left to go and have a look around the world.
Apart from this
she has given me some other ones for you to try.
For this Recipe you will need the following:
500 gr. Foie Gras
5/6 chopped Shallots
Salt and Pepper
Minced Pork with the chopped Parsley
After cutting and mincing the meat put it altogether in to a big pot, including the chopped Shallots, Parsley and the Salt and Pepper.
The Cognac has to be added as well and really it is up to you how much you would like in it.
I saw Madeleine put about 3 swigs in and I guess that should be about right.
To get it all mixed up is best to do with your hands as a cooking spoon will not really do it.
Go on......get in there with your lovely hands and get mixing............
That is both of the meats and all ingredients mixed together
After all this is done you have to cut the Foie Gras in to slices, place it in to a bowl and soak it in water and
Foie Gras soaked in water and cognac
Both bowls have to rest over night in a cool place. If you can avoid it do not put it in the fridge as that is a bit too cold.
Madeleine has a great larder off her kitchen, so that is a perfect place to keep it.
The next morning get all your jars together and make sure they are clean.

in to the jars until they are about 3/4 full.
Then take a slice of the Foie Gras and place it on top of the Pātė and then carry on spooning the rest of the Pātė in the jars until it is all gone.
That is the finished Pātė in the Jars
Once everything is divided in to all the jars they need to be sealed and if you don't want to eat it straight away all jars have to be
for about 3 hours and voila you can keep it now for about 3 years.
If you would like to eat some straight away you need to heat it in the jar for 3 hours in hot water.
Let it cool down and then you can taste it.
