  1. Trim duck of any sinew. Place half of the salt into a non-reactive container and nestle the duck breast skin side up into salt. Completely cover with the remaining salt and place in the fridge for 15-24 hours (no longer than this as the end result may become too salty).
  2. Scrape salt off and wash the duck 2-3 times in fresh water. Pat dry. Generously sprinkle over pepper on both sides of duck and then sprinkle over the herb mix. Wrap each duck breast in a clean tea towel and let cure in the fridge for 3 weeks. Check every week to ensure the duck is curing nicely.
  3. Thinly slice and serve with croutons, butter and cornichon or serve in a salad.

Super easy, and delicious! I made two breasts; ate one after 4 weeks and will age the other for a few more weeks to taste the difference
