Recipe of the Week



Duck with Cherries

  • 4 lb. duck, cleaned, and giblets
  • Salt
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 garlic clove, rushed
  • 1 tsp. dried marjoram
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 wineglass red wine
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Sugar
  • 1/2 lb. Bing cherries
Season the duck, by rubbing the skin and the inside of the carcass with salt. Put to one side, in a large casserole dish.

Arrange the carrots, onion and giblets around the duck. Sprinkle the garlic, marjoram and basil over it. Pour in the wine and about 1 cup water, and add salt, pepper and sugar to taste.

Cover the casserole and bake in a preheated 350( oven for 2 hours or until the duck is tender.

Remove the casserole from the oven. Uncover and pour off the liquid and vegetables into a large saucepan. Put the duck onto a plate and set aside to cool. Boil the contents of the saucepan over a high flame until reduced by half. Strain off the liquid into a small bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Discard the vegetables.

Meanwhile, stem and pit the cherries and put into a bowl.

Take the chilled liquid out of the refrigerator. The fat content should form a layer on the surface. Remove this. Reheat the remaining liquid until not quite boiling. Pour over the cherries and chill in the refrigerator until the sauce has turned to jelly. Remove from the refrigerator, unmold from the bowl and slice. Serve the duck cold, surrounded by slices of the jellied sauce in which the cherries are embedded.

Servings: 4.
