Roast Duck... and head... and feet

HaagenDazs | Jan 21, 2007 02:31 AM

I'm planning on making the 5 hour roast duck tomorrow for a nice after football on TV treat. I bought it at my friendly local farmer's market (Buford Highway for those in the area) and it comes whole - feet, head, neck and all. My question is, what do I do with these extra parts? I certainly can whack off the feet and cook those separately, but I'm not sure if the neck and head are of any culinary good. It may make for a more "natural" presentation, and that's cool with me - I'm not squeamish - I just wanted to make sure I'm not wasting anything. Any help?
