Ingredients :

3lb duckling

salt, pepper

2lb frozen peas

2oz unsmoked bacon

1.5oz butter a branch of savory or a bouquet garni

7 fl oz well-seasoned stock

8oz small onions

Method :

Wash the duck and pat it dry. Season the inside with salt and pepper, and prick the outside skin all over to allow the fat to escape. Roast it on a rack in a hot oven (200C, 400F, Gas 6) for 40 minutes. Defrost the peas, dip in boiling water and drain. Simmer the bacon in boiling water for 15 minutes, dice and fry in one-third of the butter. Assemble the half-roasted duck, peas, bacon and savory or bouquet garni with the boiling stock in a casserole and cook in a moderate oven (190C, 375F, Gas 5) for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, peel the onions and cook whole with the rest of the butter, the sugar and 3.5fl oz water until all the water has evaporated and the butter and sugar are just turning brown. Add the onions to the duck and cook for another 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and remove the bouquet garni. Serve the duck surrounded by the peas and onions on a large plate.
