Chef with red wine glass


Yield: Makes 6 servings.


    • 1 ready-to-cook duckling (4 to 4½ pounds)
    • Salt and ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 1 cup chopped celery
    • 6 cups cooked rice
    • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
    • 1 teaspoon thyme
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups chopped pecans
    • 1 20-ounce can pitted bing cherries
    • 3 tablespoons flour
    • 2 tablespoons currant jelly


Season cavity of duckling lightly with salt and pepper.

Stuffing: melt butter in skillet; add onion and celery and cook until tender but not brown. Add rice, peel, thyme, salt and pecans. Drain cherries, reserving juice; measure 1 cup of cherries and cut into quarters. Add to rice mixture; toss lightly to mix well. Stuff duckling.

Truss duckling and place breast side up on rack in shallow roasting pan. Bake at 325 degrees 3 hours, or until done. Spoon remainder of dressing into buttered casserole to cook along with the duckling the last hour of cooking, or freeze the casserole for future use.

Sauce: measure 3 tablespoons fat and drippings from duckling. Heat in skillet; add flour and cook over medium heat until flour is browned. Measure reserved cherry juice; add water to make 2 cups. Stir into mixture in skillet; add remaining cherries and currant jelly and simmer until jelly is melted. Serve duckling accompanied by sauce.
