How To: Cook a whole duck

Cook a whole duck

This video shows us how to cook a duck. The ingredients listed are 2 kg whole duck, cleaned, 20 ml of maple syrup, 20 ml of olive oil, 2-3 tsp. of sea salt, 12 prunes, 30 ml of cognac (brandy), parsley and orange slices.

Mix together the 20 ml of maple syrup and 20 ml of olive oil. Rub the duck's skin with this mixture.

Stuff inside of duck with salt and prunes. Splash the inside of duck with cognac. Seal the inside with a ball of aluminum foil to cover the hole.

Cover the wing tips and neck with more aluminum foil and bake with the duck breast down.

Bake for 20 minutes for every 1/2 kilo of weight. For example, for a 2 kg duck, bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Serve garnished with parsley and orange slices.
