How to make it

  • Duck Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  • Season the ducks inside and outside with salt and pepper, then roast until rare, about 40-45 minutes
  • Remove ducks from the oven, and cut lengthwise into halves
  • Discard the fat from the roasting pan and replace the ducks skin-side up in the pan
  • In a sauce pan, melt the butter and add the red pepper, vinegar, honey, garlic, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, and Cointreau
  • Cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes, then pour over the ducks
  • Roast 15 minutes more at 350 degrees F, until medium rare
  • Remove the ducks, let the meat rest, and keep it warm
  • Skim the cooking liquid of any fat and reduce it slightly in a saucepan over high heat
  • Pour over the ducks and serve immediately with Dirty Rice and Candied Yams
  • Dirty Rice Directions: In a medium-size saucepan, combine the rice with 4 cups of water
  • Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and boil gently until just tender, 10-12 minutes
  • Drain, rinse, and set aside
  • In a large skillet, saute the vegetables in the 2 tablespoons butter until soft, then add the liver, gound beef, and Marsala
  • Add the beef stock and orcestershire sauce, cooking 3 minutes
  • Then add the precooked rice and finish cooking, until the liquid is absorbed
  • Stir in the unsalted butter and red pepper
  • Candied Yams Directions: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
  • Place all ingredients in a large Dutch oven
  • Add 8 cups water
  • Cover the pot and steam the yams in the oven until fork tender, 30-40 minutes
  • Remove the lid and reduce on the stove over high heat for 7-10 minutes, until the sauce is syrupy
