For some, roast duck is the perfect Christmas entrée. This is recommended in our third sample Christmas menu.

DIRECTIONS

Defrost duckling and quarter it, removing wing tips and backbone. Arrange quarters, skin side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Roast at 325° until tender — about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Combine remaining ingredients. About 15 minutes before duckling is done, brush with honey mixture. Finish roasting. Makes 4 servings.
