Autumn Roast Duck

6 local Golden Delicious Apples
1 onion
2 carrots
2 stalks celery
3 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 cup tomato puree
duck giblets
1/2 cup flour
4-5 lb Long Island duck
Mushroom Soy (if you have it..)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
brown stock or even white stock
1 pint fresh pomegranate juice
cornstarch and water, mixed
salt
lemon juice
currant jelly or a sweet red wine like malaga
fresh pomegranate seeds
brandy

Peel core and slice 4 local Long Island Golden Delicious Apples .Save the slices under water. Chop up 2 more apples, add the other apple debris in a roast pan with chopped 1 onion, 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 3 cloves of garlic crushed, 1/2 cup tomato puree, duck giblets. Dust with 1/2 cup of flour.
Place a Long Island duck, 4-5 lb on this bed of floured mirepoix, and rub with Mushroom Soy (if you have it.. ) Roast 425 F for about an hour, or until duck is nice and brown, but UNDERDONE. Remove duck, and as soon as you can handle
it, split and quarter the duck. Remove wings, breast bones, backbones and any other duck bones or debris you can find. Roast hard until duck bones and flour brown. Scrape the contents of the roast pan to one side, and drain and save duck fat. Put the roast pan on the stove top, and heat some reserved duck fat on a clear spot. Add 1/2 cup sugar and let cook until light brown. With great care (it may splatter very hot stuff) add 1/2 cup red wine vinegar to dissolve the caramel you have made. This is a gastric. It is used to color and flavor sweet and sour sauces. Now you have in the pan: a dark mirepoix with apples, browned flour and duck fat (a brown roux) a gastric, and the duck carcasses, all nice and roasted. Add a brown stock or even a white one to cover the ingredients in the pan. Probably 2 -3 qts. Roast in the oven for 1 hour, or remove to a pot on the stove and simmer for an hour. This makes the duck stock.
Strain the duck stock and defat it. Reduce to 1 pint or so. . Add 1 pint of fresh pomegranate juice. Now you have a qt. Reduce it to a pint. It should be
med consistency with no fat free. You can use cornstarch and water to thicken it to desired consistency, but boil it well if you add cornstarch. Taste it.

First bring up the salt level. Then taste for sour. Bring up the sour level with reduced pomegranate juice and lemon juice, or make a little gastric in a pan. It keeps. . Does it have a distinct taste of pomegranate? If not reduce some pomegranate juice and add. If the pomegranate and sour taste are ok, then use some currant jelly to sweeten it, or use a sweet red wine like Malaga. The sauce should be the same color as the roasted duck, and taste strongly of duck, pomegranate, sweet and sour. . Now place the duck quarters in a 400 oven to heat and crisp. This will finish the cooking, which is why you wanted to keep them underdone. (I like the breasts rosy, so for myself, I put the legs in and 5 min later the breasts.
While the duck is heating, Saute the drained apple slices in clear duck fat . The fat should almost smoke before adding the apples and don't add too many. We are looking for color. When we see the first signs of color, sprinkle lightly with sugar, and as soon as the sugar begins to caramelize, add a spritz of pomegranate juice to make the apples glace. Glaceed, like glazed Make a ring of glace apples around the outside of the serving dish.. Put a pool of the hot sauce sweet and sour pomegranate duck sauce in the center well. . Take the hot duck from the oven..It 's skin is sizzling, so blot away any fat with a clean towel. Place it on the sauce. Put a stripe of the sauce over the ducks.
Sprinkle with fresh pomegranate seeds. Serve additional sauce in a gravy boat.
Serves two. Takes about 2-3 hours work, but not much more time to do a few more ducks. Flame the duck, not me. Heat brandy in a small copper saute pan over a rechaud at the table. tilt pan as brandy begins to boil, so that fumes light the brandy in the pan. Pouf! then pour over individual servings.

Salt and pepper
1/2 fresh Lemon

Roast Goose W/apples

8 lb Young goose (to 10 lb)
1/2 Lemon
Salt & fresh ground pepper
2 cups Apples; peeled, coarsely chopped
2 cups Dried prunes; pre soaked,-pitted and coarsely chopped
1 lg Onion; peeled & quartered

Preheat oven to 325F.

To prepare this classic Danish Christmas dish, first wash the goose under cold running water. Pat it thoroughly dry with paper towels and rub inside and out with lemon. Lightly salt and pepper the inside and stuff the cavity with the coarsely chopped apples, prunes and onion quarters. Close by lacing skewers or by sewing with heavy white thread. Fasten the neck skin to the back of the goose with a skewer and truss the bird securely so that it will keep it's shape while cooking. Roast goose on a rack set in a shallow open pan for 3 to 3 1/2 hours (about 20 to 25 minutes per pound). As the goose fat accumulates in the pan, draw it off with a bulb baster or large kitchen spoon. Basting the goose itself is unnecessary. To test whether the bird is done, pierce the thigh with the tip of a small sharp knife. If the juice that runs out is still somewhat pink, roast another 5 to 10 minutes or until juices run clear or pale yellow. When done, turn off oven leaving the finished bird to set with the door ajar for 15 minutes to make it easier to carve.

Transfer the goose to a large heated platter and remove the string and skewers. Scoop out the stuffing and discard it. The fruits and onion will have imparted their flavor to the goose but will be far too fatty to serve.
Serves 8 to 10

Emmittsburg Holiday Goose

9 lb Goose
Salt
Ground Black Pepper
1 lg Yellow Onion; peeled and -thinly sliced
1 md Carrot; peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp Sugar
4 Tbsp Rendered Goose Fat
6 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
1 qt Chicken Broth
3 cups Dry Vermouth
1/2 cup Port Wine
8 oz Jar Gooseberry Jam

Preheat the oven to 500F. Season the cavity of the goose with salt and pepper. PAt the goose dry with paper towels, then set the bird, breast-side up, on a rack in a roasting pan with a tight-fitted lid. Brown the goose without the lid in the hot oven about 20 minutes.
Turn it a time or two to make the color even. Now salt and pepper the bird, place it breast-side up on the rack and turn the oven down to 325F and let the bird continue to roast while you make the braising liquid.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat goose fat from the roasting pan and brown together the goose neck, gizzard and heart that you've coarsely chopped, along with the sliced onions and carrots. Sprinkle the mixture with sugar and cook until the onions and carrots are caramelized. Stir in the flour and continue to cook while the flour browns. Add chicken stock and stir vigorously to make a thin sauce. Pour sauce into the roaster under the bird. Add wine. Cover the roast and let the good cook until done, about 2 1/2 hours.
The goose is done when the drumsticks move slightly in their sockets and the juices run pale yellow instead of pink. Lift off goose fat and save for cooking or discard. Heat the jam in the microwave about 30 seconds so that it will pour, the brush the glaze all over the bird and replace in the oven, uncovered. Roast 10-15 minutes more, until the glaze sets. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
Skim all the fat from the roaster and boil down the liquid until it is thick enough to coat a spoon. Correct seasonings with salt and pepper. Stir in the port and simmer a moment. Strain the sauce into a gravy boat. You'll have at least a quart of sauce. Serve the goose with mashed potatoes and rutabagas and steamed Brussels sprouts.

Autumn Roast Duck

6 local Golden Delicious Apples
1 onion
2 carrots
2 stalks celery
3 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 cup tomato puree
duck giblets
1/2 cup flour
4-5 lb Long Island duck
Mushroom Soy (if you have it..)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
brown stock or even white stock
1 pint fresh pomegranate juice
cornstarch and water, mixed
salt
lemon juice
currant jelly or a sweet red wine like malaga
fresh pomegranate seeds
brandy

Peel core and slice 4 local Long Island Golden Delicious Apples .Save the slices under water. Chop up 2 more apples, add the other apple debris in a roast pan with chopped 1 onion, 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 3 cloves of garlic crushed, 1/2 cup tomato puree, duck giblets. Dust with 1/2 cup of flour.
Place a Long Island duck, 4-5 lb on this bed of floured mirepoix, and rub with Mushroom Soy (if you have it.. ) Roast 425 F for about an hour, or until duck is nice and brown, but UNDERDONE. Remove duck, and as soon as you can handle
it, split and quarter the duck. Remove wings, breast bones, backbones and any other duck bones or debris you can find. Roast hard until duck bones and flour brown. Scrape the contents of the roast pan to one side, and drain and save duck fat. Put the roast pan on the stove top, and heat some reserved duck fat on a clear spot. Add 1/2 cup sugar and let cook until light brown. With great care (it may splatter very hot stuff) add 1/2 cup red wine vinegar to dissolve the caramel you have made. This is a gastric. It is used to color and flavor sweet and sour sauces. Now you have in the pan: a dark mirepoix with apples, browned flour and duck fat (a brown roux) a gastric, and the duck carcasses, all nice and roasted. Add a brown stock or even a white one to cover the ingredients in the pan. Probably 2 -3 qts. Roast in the oven for 1 hour, or remove to a pot on the stove and simmer for an hour. This makes the duck stock.
Strain the duck stock and defat it. Reduce to 1 pint or so. . Add 1 pint of fresh pomegranate juice. Now you have a qt. Reduce it to a pint. It should be
med consistency with no fat free. You can use cornstarch and water to thicken it to desired consistency, but boil it well if you add cornstarch. Taste it.

First bring up the salt level. Then taste for sour. Bring up the sour level with reduced pomegranate juice and lemon juice, or make a little gastric in a pan. It keeps. . Does it have a distinct taste of pomegranate? If not reduce some pomegranate juice and add. If the pomegranate and sour taste are ok, then use some currant jelly to sweeten it, or use a sweet red wine like Malaga. The sauce should be the same color as the roasted duck, and taste strongly of duck, pomegranate, sweet and sour. . Now place the duck quarters in a 400 oven to heat and crisp. This will finish the cooking, which is why you wanted to keep them underdone. (I like the breasts rosy, so for myself, I put the legs in and 5 min later the breasts.
While the duck is heating, Saute the drained apple slices in clear duck fat . The fat should almost smoke before adding the apples and don't add too many. We are looking for color. When we see the first signs of color, sprinkle lightly with sugar, and as soon as the sugar begins to caramelize, add a spritz of pomegranate juice to make the apples glace. Glaceed, like glazed Make a ring of glace apples around the outside of the serving dish.. Put a pool of the hot sauce sweet and sour pomegranate duck sauce in the center well. . Take the hot duck from the oven..It 's skin is sizzling, so blot away any fat with a clean towel. Place it on the sauce. Put a stripe of the sauce over the ducks.
Sprinkle with fresh pomegranate seeds. Serve additional sauce in a gravy boat.
Serves two. Takes about 2-3 hours work, but not much more time to do a few more ducks. Flame the duck, not me. Heat brandy in a small copper saute pan over a rechaud at the table. tilt pan as brandy begins to boil, so that fumes light the brandy in the pan. Pouf! then pour over individual servings.

1/2 cup Chopped cooked bacon
4 oz Butter
4 ea Finely chopped shallots
2 med Eggs
Salt and pepper
1/2 fresh Lemon

Roast Goose W/apples

8 lb Young goose (to 10 lb)
1/2 Lemon
Salt & fresh ground pepper
2 cups Apples; peeled, coarsely chopped
2 cups Dried prunes; pre soaked,-pitted and coarsely chopped
1 lg Onion; peeled & quartered

Preheat oven to 325F.

To prepare this classic Danish Christmas dish, first wash the goose under cold running water. Pat it thoroughly dry with paper towels and rub inside and out with lemon. Lightly salt and pepper the inside and stuff the cavity with the coarsely chopped apples, prunes and onion quarters. Close by lacing skewers or by sewing with heavy white thread. Fasten the neck skin to the back of the goose with a skewer and truss the bird securely so that it will keep it's shape while cooking. Roast goose on a rack set in a shallow open pan for 3 to 3 1/2 hours (about 20 to 25 minutes per pound). As the goose fat accumulates in the pan, draw it off with a bulb baster or large kitchen spoon. Basting the goose itself is unnecessary. To test whether the bird is done, pierce the thigh with the tip of a small sharp knife. If the juice that runs out is still somewhat pink, roast another 5 to 10 minutes or until juices run clear or pale yellow. When done, turn off oven leaving the finished bird to set with the door ajar for 15 minutes to make it easier to carve.

Transfer the goose to a large heated platter and remove the string and skewers. Scoop out the stuffing and discard it. The fruits and onion will have imparted their flavor to the goose but will be far too fatty to serve.
Serves 8 to 10

Emmittsburg Holiday Goose

9 lb Goose
Salt
Ground Black Pepper
1 lg Yellow Onion; peeled and -thinly sliced
1 md Carrot; peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp Sugar
4 Tbsp Rendered Goose Fat
6 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
1 qt Chicken Broth
3 cups Dry Vermouth
1/2 cup Port Wine
8 oz Jar Gooseberry Jam

Preheat the oven to 500F. Season the cavity of the goose with salt and pepper. PAt the goose dry with paper towels, then set the bird, breast-side up, on a rack in a roasting pan with a tight-fitted lid. Brown the goose without the lid in the hot oven about 20 minutes.
Turn it a time or two to make the color even. Now salt and pepper the bird, place it breast-side up on the rack and turn the oven down to 325F and let the bird continue to roast while you make the braising liquid.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat goose fat from the roasting pan and brown together the goose neck, gizzard and heart that you've coarsely chopped, along with the sliced onions and carrots. Sprinkle the mixture with sugar and cook until the onions and carrots are caramelized. Stir in the flour and continue to cook while the flour browns. Add chicken stock and stir vigorously to make a thin sauce. Pour sauce into the roaster under the bird. Add wine. Cover the roast and let the good cook until done, about 2 1/2 hours.
The goose is done when the drumsticks move slightly in their sockets and the juices run pale yellow instead of pink. Lift off goose fat and save for cooking or discard. Heat the jam in the microwave about 30 seconds so that it will pour, the brush the glaze all over the bird and replace in the oven, uncovered. Roast 10-15 minutes more, until the glaze sets. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
Skim all the fat from the roaster and boil down the liquid until it is thick enough to coat a spoon. Correct seasonings with salt and pepper. Stir in the port and simmer a moment. Strain the sauce into a gravy boat. You'll have at least a quart of sauce. Serve the goose with mashed potatoes and rutabagas and steamed Brussels sprouts.
