Wild Ducks Recipe
Recipes and cooking ideas for wild ducks.
Most wild ducks are likely to have the flavor of fish, and when in the hands of beginner cooks are sometimes unpalatable for this reason. Before roasting wild ducks, parboil them with a small peeled carrot put within each duck. This absorbs the unpleasant taste. An onion will have the same effect, but unless you use onions in the stuffing the carrot is preferable. Roast the same as tame duck. Or put into the duck a whole onion peeled, plenty of salt and pepper and a glass of claret, bake in a hot oven twenty minutes. Serve wild ducks hot with the gravy it yields in cooking and a dish of currant jelly.
