    Title: Roast Mallard Duck w/Honey Butter-Chorizo Stuffing
    Categories: Game, Pork, Herbs, Breads
    Yield: 5 Servings

    40 g (1 1/2 oz) spun honey spread
    110 g (4 oz) bulk chorizo
    100 g (3 1/2 oz) white breadcrumbs
    2 kg (4 1/2 lb) mallard duck
    2 tb Thyme; chopped
    1 tb Butter or olive oil
    1 lg Onion; peeled, chopped
    1 cl Garlic; peeled, fine chop'd
    Salt & ground pepper

    Set the oven @ 175+|C/350+|f/Gas mark 4.

    First make the stuffing, melt 25g of the spun honey
    spread in a saucepan with the butter, then add the
    onion, garlic and chorizo, cover with a lid and cook
    on a low heat for 8-10 minutes or until the onions are
    soft but not browned.

    Take off the heat, then stir in the thyme and bread
    crumbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper then
    allow to cool.

    Spoon the cooled stuffing into the duck's cavity and
    place the duck in a roasting tin. Smear the remaining
    spun honey over the skin of the bird and sprinkle with
    some salt and pepper.

    Place in the oven and roast for about 1 hour and 30-45
    minutes (allowing about 20 minutes per 450g/1 lb),
    until cooked, basting occasionally. If it begins to
    look quite dark while cooking, cover with some foil.

    To check whether the duck is fully cooked, stick a
    skewer into the thigh with a spoon placed underneath
    to catch the juices, the juices should run clear.
    Also, the legs should feel quite loose on the bird.

    When cooked, transfer the duck to a serving plate and
    leave to rest, covered with foil and in the oven at
    the lowest temperature. This will keep the duck warm
    while you make the gravy or sauce.

    Spoon the stuffing out of the duck into a serving bowl
    or onto a plate.

    Carve and serve.

    Serves 4-6

    Adapted to use a duck rather than a chicken by Uncle
    Dirty Dave. Quite good. I was given a mallard duck but
    a canvasback, teal, or even a domestic duck would work
