COOKING GUIDELINES

Honey Duck Recipe
Orange-stuffed duck, sprinkled with fresh basil and ginger, and basted with a honey citrus glaze.

1 whole duck, rinsed (approx. 2 kg)
1 g fresh basil leaves
2 g chopped fresh ginger root
5 g salt
½ orange, quartered
475 ml water
235 ml honey
115 g butter
5 ml lemon juice
120 ml undiluted, thawed orange juice concentrate

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C
  2. In a small bowl mix together the basil, ginger and salt and sprinkle mixture on inside and outside of duck. Stuff duck with orange quarters and lay in roasting tray. Add water.
  3. In a small saucepan combine the honey, butter, lemon juice and orange juice concentrate. Simmer together over low heat until syrupy; pour a little of the mixture over the duck, saving the rest for basting. Cover roaster.
  4. Bake/roast duck in preheated oven for 30 min. Turn duck breast down, reduce heat to 150°C and roast covered for another 2.5 hours, or until very tender. If desired, turn duck breast up during last few minutes of cooking to brown.
