Duck Onion Dip/Dressing


This is a wonderful flavor infusion:  The rich mouth feel of

duck yolk, and sweet caramelized onions cooked in bacon

drippings.  The succulent sweet tangy bite of reduced

balsamic vinegar.  Red garlic.  Home-made spicy mustard.

Peanut and olive oil.   Sea salt and white pepper.



Caramelize onion in bacon drippings.  Process yolk, onion,

reduced balsamic vinegar, garlic, mustard and spices.

Emulsifying the oil with processor running is done easily by

very slowly adding the oil.   This makes the perfect texture

for dip, and can be thinned a bit for dressing.






Duck Onion Dip/Dressing

  • 1 duck yolk, room temperature
  • 1 sweet onion caramelized*
  • 4-6 tablespoons reduced* balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons mustard Golden Whole Grain Mustard
  • 1 clove red/pink garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ground white pepper
  • 1 & 1/2 cups organic peanut oil non-GMO
  • I like Spectrum refined
  • 1/2 cup  1st cold press extra virgin local olive oil
  • I like California Olive Ranch

*To caramelize onion; simmer sliced onion in 2 tablespoons

of  bacon dripping 2-4 hours to golden.  *To reduce balsamic

vinegar for this recipe, simmer 10 tablespoons until reduced

in volume to around 1/2,  15-20 minutes.  Process yolks,

vinegar, mustard, onion, garlic and spices to smooth.

With food processor running, add the thinnest possible

stream of the oils.  The mixture will emulsify.  Making a

perfectly thick and wonderful dip.  For dressing mix in by

hand, 2-6 tablespoons of filtered water to thin as desired.
