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
