"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.


Serves: 3-4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 2 hours

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 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prick just the skin of the duck (do not go into the meat).
  3. In a bowl, mix the orange marmalade with the thawed orange juice concentrate. Pour this mixture over the duck.
  4. Roast duck for 1 ½ hours.
  5. Raise the oven temperature to 425 degrees and baste every 10 minutes for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, puree the cherries (including syrup) and pour them 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.
