The Bounty Of Central Florida by Valerie Hart

Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients

    • 2 young ducks, approximately 2-3 pounds each

    • 1 large Florida sweet onion, chopped
    • Handful of fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1 bay leaf
     

Directions

1. Clean, rinse and cut each duck into six pieces. Remove excess fat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2. Combine marinade ingredients in a large pan. Place duck in the pan and spoon the marinade over. Cover and refrigerate overnight or several hours, turning the duck several times for it to marinate evenly.

    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 pound white mushrooms, cut into large chunks
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup beef broth
    • 2 large carrots, finely chopped

Directions

2. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are soft Stir in the flour. Slowly stir in 1 cup of the marinade. Add the beef broth, stirring until smooth. Add the carrots.

3. Add duck pieces and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and cover the skillet. Cook 1 hour or longer, until the duck is very tender.
