Roast Duck

This recipe uses a Cayuga duck, which is a heritage duck. Preparation is easy, cooking time is longer at a lower temperature, which ensures a succulent, tender, flavorful meat. Pared with roast potatoes and peas or your favorite veggies. A meal to remember. (I do!!!)

A great tasting entree, just right for a special meal for two. Costing less than a meal for two at a fast food joint, healthier for you and supporting local growers. Is that a WIN, WIN, WIN Great meal. Thank you Jennifer


Here is a picture of our duck. The foil was the only thing holding it together. It literally was falling off the bone.
