  • 1 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Shallot, finely chopped

Roast duck legs to taste

While duck is roasting place shallot, water, fresh rosemary, soy sauce, orange juice and jelly in saucepan.

When duck is cooked, placed on heated plate, pour over sauce and serve with steamed vegetables and baby potatoes.

  • Serve with hot or cold game meat – duck, pheasant or venison.
  • Coat your favourite fruit – cherries are particularly good – with melted jelly. This is equally delicious with savoury and sweet food. Serve alongside game…duck, pheasant or venison. You will also drool over this mixture in pavlova or as a topping for panna cotta.
  • Sinfully good with a wedge of aged Gouda.
