Confit foie gras, plums in vinegar

For the pickled plums:

- Wash and dry the plums. Place them in a bowl with the cinnamon, cloves and bay leaf.

- Boil the vinegar with the sugar, pour the hot liquid over the plums. Cover and let macerate for 2 days at room temperature.

- The 3rd day: pour the maceration syrup obtained in a saucepan, bring it to the boil. Pour it over the plums. Cover and let macerate again for a day.

- The 4th day: transfer the contents of the salad bowl to a saucepan.

Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Gently remove the plums. Place them in jars. Let the syrup thicken before pouring it over the plums. Close tightly.

For the foie gras:

- Immerse the foie gras in the milk. Let it rest for 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator. Take the liver out and expose it to room temperature 30 minutes before working it. Wipe it off.

- Place the foie gras on a cutting board. Separate the two lobes.

Extract the large central vein and its small branches by gently pulling them. Season it and shape it into a sausage shape.

- Unfold the compresses, wrap the liver in them and tie it up like a roast without tightening too much. Cover with coarse salt and let stand 8 hours in the refrigerator.

- Remove the liver from the refrigerator. Wipe it off to remove the excess coarse salt. Remove the compress and cut it into portions.

- Serve the foie gras accompanied by a few plums in vinegar.
