First Time Cooking a Duck

Elora | Dec 23, 2009 06:17 PM

Surprisingly, I've never roasted a duck before. My memories of cooking duck surround the day my mom tried to make one and nearly set the house on fire.

/me cringes

I'm a much better cook than my mom was, particularly in technique so I'm not so worried about setting the oven to flames, however, I could use any cooking tips anyone might care to share.

Recipes, appreciated as well although I think I'll stick with the classic Duck L'orange since I have all the ingredients at hand, and am loathe to head back into the supermarket again after todays visit. Simple, nothing elaborate. It's a duck sized for 2 - just your average Long Island type, I think it's about 6 pounds or so.
