Duck

by Ruth Lemoine
(Wuerzburg, Germany)


Ingredients:


  • 1 Duck
  • 10 Broetchen or 1 bread loaf
  • 2 cups of warm milk (not hot)
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Cup Parsley
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Tsp Butter

Instructions:

  • Cut the bread into thin slices, sprinkle with 1 tsp salt.
    Pour warm milk over and leave for 15 minutes.

  • Cut the onion into small cubes and fry with the parsley in the melted butter.

  • Add onions, parsley, pepper and eggs and knead with the soaked bread.

  • Wash the duck with lukewarm water and dry inside and out well. Season well with salt and pepper inside and fill the dumpling dough loosely in the duck, do not make too full, the mass goes on.

  • Pin up the open ends of duck with toothpicks and kitchen string. Leave the string long enough and tie the legs. Pin up the neck and tie the wings to the body. Rub the outside with salt and pepper.

  • Place the duck breast side down on the rack, insert the drip pan underneath a rail. In the drip pan pour 2 cups of salt water.

  • Set the oven to 285°F and roast the duck 2 hours. Flip it over and fry for another 1.5 hours. Increase the temperature to 380 and roast ready for 15-20 min or until brown.

  • The duck must not be poured, it will be wonderfully juicy because of the salt water.

  • The Rest of the bread dough is for Semmelknoedel dumplings. If the mass is too moist, yet incorporate breadcrumbs and let the dumplings draw for 20 minutes in salt water.
