rosemary-duck-3ROSEMARY ORANGE DUCK WITH ROASTED VEGETABLES

INGREDIENTS

1 duck
2-3 oranges (clementines also work nicely)
1 bunch of rosemary
5-6 carrots
5-6 parsnips
3 leeks
3 cloves garlic, crushed
Freshly milled black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Crush the garlic in a garlic press. Cut the carrots and parsnips into small-bite pieces. Cut the leeks into 1-inch rounds.
Mix all the vegetables with the crushed garlic and spread this mixture on the bottom of a roasting pan.
Cut the oranges into quarters. Stuff the orange pieces and the rosemary into the cavity of the duck.
Sprinkle the duck with some crushed black pepper.
Place the duck on top of the roasted vegetables.
Place the pan into the oven at 375F. Bake for about 45 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and, using a baster, spread the juices over the duck and the vegetables. This helps keep them from drying out.
Baste every 20 minutes or so until the duck is fully cooked. Total cooking time should be about 2.5 hours.
Serves 4
