I was in Tesco's today and impulse bought a duck. I am worried this is because my subconscious was trying to impress Dave Holland with my l33t domestic skilz. Sadly, I have no l33t domestic skilz. But I do have a duck.
My dad says cook it following the instructions on the packaging, but remember to prick the surface all over about every 20 minutes. Also stand it on a rack above the roasting tray. Duck is lovely, but just remember to fat that runs out can also make the best roast spuds too.
Part boil the spuds, drain and then shake in the pan to rough the surface. Place in a roasting try. Not the duck roasting try. Then spoon 3 or 4 good spoonfuls of duck fat over. Place in the top of the over and move them around about every 30 mins. - Roast spuds to die for.
