Julia Child: 'You can't use duck fat for anything'

I'm blown away. Season 1, episode 13 of The French Chef, 5:30 into the show and Julia instructs the viewer to throw away duck fat.

I died a little.

It's the first time I've seen this episode, so she might come back later and say "oh, did I say you can't do anything with duck fat? Sorry. I'm drunk. Let's make fries!!"
