The Bites (July 2011)
Maple Leaf Farms Duck Wings
Maple Leaf Farms introduces fully cooked Duck Wings to its food portfolio. The duck wings are cooked in a unique procedure that tenderizes the meat yet retains the crunchy outside coating. Paired with signature sauces, the wings expand menus as a new protein that lends itself to a variety of flavor combinations. www.mapleleaffarms.com.
