This week I finally got around to making a surprisingly simple, delicious, easy roast duck. I like to eat duck but, until now, I had never made a duck at home because I assumed it was too technical and complicated. Now I know that I have been missing out on an easy and delicious bird all of these years! My kids loved the rich flavor of the meat and they ended up eating more than half of the duck as their after school snack along with thin sliced Honeycrisp apples.
With a success like that, you can be sure that duck will be in the regular rotation from now on! As a bonus, after I roasted the duck, I saved all of the rendered fat and I have been using it a little at a time to make AMAZING home fries in the oven.
