Hints & Tips
- Save the fat from your roast duck to use for making delicious crispy potatoes.
- It is very important to rest your duck before serving; this equilibrates the temperature and spreads the moisture around.
- You can easily make duck crackling by cutting the skin into thin strips and frying until crisp. Use this on salads or as part of your favourite duck recipe.
- Remove your whole duck from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking
