"It's the most wonderful time of the year." Yeah, yeah, but what is there to eat? I know that's what I hear and I bet dollars to donuts you do to.

Hot, steaming food in the forefront with a crackling fire in the background and Christmas music playing... okay, not the music.

Ingredients:


  • duck prepped for roasting
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1-1/4 cups frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 cans cherries in sweet syrup
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 3 TBS brown sugar, packed
  • 2 TBS cornstarch

Directions:


PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Prick just the skin of the duck (do not go into the meat).


In a bowl, mix the orange marmalade with the thawed orange juice concentrate. Pour this mixture over the duck.

Roast duck for 1-1/2 hours . Raise the oven temperature to 425 degrees and baste every 10 minutes for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, puree the cherries (including syrup) and pour into a saucepan. Add the wine, brown sugar and cornstarch. Bring to a boil and simmer until it thickens. Pour over the duck before serving. Garnish with orange slices, figs and blueberries.


Wine Suggestions

  • 2009 Alamos Chardonnay ($13)
  • 2010 Santa Rita Reserva Sauvignon Blanc ($12)
  • 2010 Lindeman’s Bin 90 Moscato ($8)
