Servings 6
Prep Time:  15 minutes


    Duck Stock and Duck:
    • 2 oranges, halved
    • 1 onion, halved and studded with 4 cloves
    • 2 carrots, coarsely chopped
    • 1 stalk celery, coarsely chopped
    • 3 slices fresh ginger, about ¼-inch thick and 1 inch in diameter
    • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 2 star anise pods
    • 1 (4 to 5-pound) duckling, thawed if frozen

    • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    • 1½ tablespoons honey
    • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

    • 2 cups Armagnac, other brandy or apple cider
    • 1 cup Duck Stock (reserved)
    • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen, petite whole (pearl) onions, thawed
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 cup (about 6 ounces) pitted dried plums
    • Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat oven to 400°F.
For Stock and Duck: In deep pot large enough to hold duck, combine ingredients for Duck Stock. Prick duck all over with fork; add to pot with water to cover.

Bring to boil over high heat. Cover with plate smaller than pot to keep duck submerged. Cook at low boil 20 minutes.

Remove duck to foil-lined roasting pan with rack. Strain and reserve 1 cup Duck Stock. Roast duck 30 minutes.

For Glaze: Meanwhile, in bowl, mix Glaze ingredients. Coat duck with Glaze; roast 15 to 20 minutes more, or until thickest part of breast reaches internal temperature of 170°F. Meat will be slightly pink; roast to 180°F for well done.

For Sauce: Meanwhile, in skillet over medium-high heat reduce Armagnac by half; add reserved Duck Stock and reduce by half again; set aside.

In another skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter with the sugar. Add onions and water. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, tossing often, until onions are golden brown. Reduce heat to low; add dried plums and Armagnac mixture. Gradually whisk in remaining butter. Season with salt and pepper.

Allow duck to rest 10 minutes before carving and serving with Sauce.
