My new favorite way to cook ducks. Got this from a friend, who got it from his grand dad. A little different but it turns out fantastic. I get tired of the old bacon toothpick thing..... this one will make you think twice about turning duck into sausage. Ingredients: Baking soda - 1tbsp shortening - 1/2 cup salt 1/2 tsp pepper - 1/4 tsp flour - 1/2 cup water 1 cup red cabbage - 1 - chopped vinegar - 1/2 cup sugar - 2 tbsp Rub duck breasts (about 4-6 ducks depending on size)with baking soda and rinse off. Cut into serving pieces (cube), melt shortening in pan. Coat duck pieces with salt, pepper, and flour mix. Brown pieces. After browned, add 1/2 cup of water, cover and simmer for 1 hour. After hour, lift out duck and put in cabbage. Place duck and drippings back over cabbage, pour sugar,water,vinegar mix over duck. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Pull ducka nd cabbage out of pan and place on platter. Render drippings in pan tinto a thick glazing (gravy) and poor over duck/cabbage on platter. EAT. If you did it right, the duck just falls apart. Not hard to make, just takes a little time. Try it, you'll love it.
