On the menu today:

xaos' stuffed roast duckling

-5-6 lb. duckling w/gizzards
-3 small fresh rome apples
-2 small fresh oranges
-1/2 tsp. fresh ground nutmeg
-1 tsp minced ginger root
-2 tbsp. raw granulated sugar
-1 tbsp granulated sea salt
-2 tbsp fresh cracked peppercorn
-1 tsp fresh rosemary leaves
-2 tsp orange rind shavings (zest)
-unsalted butter to baste (melted)
-2 c. fresh or pre-packaged orange juice (optional)
-small length of clean white string (about 6 inches)
-meat pins or extra long toothpicks

preheat oven to 350 degrees.

remove gizzards from the duckling, rinse body cavity and outer flesh under cool
running water until water runs clear.

in a medium sized bowl, place cubed apples and oranges, nutmeg, ginger and
sugar.  mix well.

stuff duckling with fruit and spice mixture and pin the end of the duckling
closed with meat pins or extra long toothpicks.  use a small length of clean
white string to tie the legs together once the cavity is closed, and wind string
around tail to secure it.

season the outer flesh on top and sides with sea salt and cracked pepper.
sprinkle with orange zest and rosemary herb. 

place in covered roasting pan in center of the oven and bake 3 & 1/2 hours or
until meat on drumstick is tender.  if you have a bit of orange juice available,
this is great warmed with butter and used as a basting juice!  baste bird every
1/2 hour...this will ensure a delightful brown skin and will help to keep the
meat from becoming dry or tough.

remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes.  remove fruit stuffing and garnish the
bird with it.  leave string attached for presentation if desired.

this dish is excellent when served alongside creamed red rose potatoes and
steamed asparagus!  also serve with red wine, never white.  blushes are okay.

(she whipped this dish up for thanksgiving last year.  it is surprisingly easy to
prepare and most of the ingredients can be replaced by simpler ones (i.e., sea
salt can be replaced by regular table salt).  She prefers to use the ingredients
listed, but suit to your taste and budget.
