Cooking Christmas duck "Secret from around the world":

Step 1: Prepare the duck.

First, rinse the carcass of the gutted duck well, both from the outside and inside. Rinse the roots well under running cold water, then peel and rinse again. Then cut into large enough pieces. Now put the duck in a large pan with a dense bottom, overlay it with chopped roots, sprinkle with all the spices on top, add a bay leaf. Then fill with clean water to the topso that the whole duck is under water, and put on medium heat to cook. Cook the duck for about half an hour. Then carefully strain the broth into a separate clean container.

Step 2: Cook the marinade.

Remove the duck from the pan and cool a little. If you will not cook the dish immediately, for example the next day, then cover the duck with a lid and place in the refrigerator. And if you cook immediately, then proceed to the preparation of the marinade. To do this, mix salt, ground black pepper, cognac and sauce in a separate container. Mix everything thoroughly, coat the duck with marinade, place in a container and cover with a tight lid. Put it in a cold place to marinate, at least 2 hours.

Step 3: Bake the duck.

Wash the orange under cold running water, then peel and divide into slices. They start inside the already pickled duck, then place it in a special baking sleeve. Tie one end of the sleeve tightly and pour in the remaining marinade. Then distribute all over the sleeve peel from oranges, add anise stars and cinnamon, tie a sleeve on the other side. Using a fork, pierce several holes on top of the sleeve so that steam can escape during cooking. Put the sleeve on a baking sheet and send the duck to bake, in a preheated oven up to 150 degrees. Bake duck about 2-3 hoursuntil it is covered with a golden crust.

Step 4: We serve a Christmas duck "Secret from around the world."

When the duck is ready, remove it carefully from the sleeve and place to flat serving dish. Serve this dish with baked mushrooms and vegetables with cheese! Good appetite!
