Honeyed Duck

Print Email

4 ducklings or 1 large goose
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1½ teaspoon salt
1 cup honey
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon powdered mustard
1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Mix together basil, ginger, pepper and salt. Mix together in saucepan, honey, butter, orange and lemon juices and dry mustard; boil for 3 minutes. Put about 1 teaspoon of basil mixture inside of each duck and rub any left over on the outside. Stuff ducks with leftover orange slices.

Pour half the honey mixture over the ducks in roaster. Cover and roast at 400°F for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F, turn ducks breast down, and roast, basting occasionally with the rest of the honey mixture, until ducks are very tender, about 2 1/2 hours. Turn breast side up for the last half hour to brown.
