Terrific duck sauce. It's somewhat reminiscent of the sauce used in Peking duck (Plum sauce?) Not difficult at all. Read More

Made this for our annual before Christmas dinner I make for my parents. Fantastic! Instead of white wine I used golden rum hey orange and rum. Worked great! To make things simpler I made it the day before. Used Roast Duck recipe from this site and thinned it a bit with chicken stock before baking. Never made duck before.Everyone loved it. Read More
