How to make it
- For Puree:
- Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook until potatoes are tender.
- Drain and return potatoes to pan.
- Add spices, butter, brown sugar and cream. Stir together and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is well combined and sugar is dissolved.
- Transfer to a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until mixture is smooth. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
- For sauce:
- In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until beginning to soften.
- Add cherry preserves, balsamic vinegar and black pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until mixture is reduced and thickened (if it gets too thick, just add a little water). Swirl the cold butter into the sauce and season with salt and pepper.
- For confit:
- Roast confit (skin side up) in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes until warmed through and slightly crispy.
- To serve: Spoon puree onto each plate. Set 2 duck legs on top, kind of criss crossing them. Drizzle a little sauce on the duck and the remaining sauce around plate.
