Because being healthy pays off when you're old while eating delicious food pays off RIGHT NOW!

"Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them." --Samuel Butler. Right on, brother!

3 spoons of Crème de Cassis
1 duckling
1 cup of kosher chicken stock
2 lemons
1/2 cup of fresh currants, or preserves
salt and freshly ground pepper

Inject the duck with a spoon of the liquor and put a lemon in the cavity. Truss the duck. Rub the skin with the juice of the other lemon, salt, and pepper.

Roast, breast side up on a roasting pan with a rack for 30 minutes at 325 F. Continue baking and baste every 20 minutes for 1.5 hours.

When duck is done, remove the fat from the pan and heat on the range. Add the chicken stock and reduce for a minute or two, scraping the bottom and the sides of the pan. Then add the currrants and the rest of the cassis and lower heat. Cook for 5 minutes.

Place duck on serving dish and pour sauce on and around it.

leftRepression is the fickle mother of sloppy rebellion. A strong, brave few continue to use heavy cream, butter, rendered fat, salt, sugar, and whole milk. Thank you for joining the Eat Dangerously revolution.
