A very rich and warming casserole for one of those colder days. In spite of its simplicity the flavour is very "WOW".

Distinctive, gamey-tasting duck breasts go beautifully with the sweet, juicy apricots.

A great winter warmer, this slow roasting dish is bursting with flavour from the rich sauce, which is a great match for the duck. Delicious served with rice, pasta, mashed potatoes and vegetables.

Marinated duck legs are cooked with star anise, five-spice, soy sauce, cinnamon, chillies, plums and pears. The result is a sweet, savoury and super-tender duck dish. Enjoy with freshly cooked rice.

This is a classic French recipe, which creates the most tender duck legs. They are slowly baked for 6 hours, then allowed to cure for up to 2 months. It makes a wonderful gift for family and friends.

The delicious flavour combination of duck and orange are brought together in this dish. Duck legs are cooked until meltingly tender in a zesty orange sauce. Enjoy with freshly cooked rice.

Duck legs become beautifully succulent when slow-cooked with wine and vegetables, and are very lean without the skin. Boiling the cooking liquid to reduce it results in a sauce with a wonderful flavour, which is great soaked up by the crisp, piquant bread croutes that accompany the dish.

Duck legs make a richly flavoured, hearty goulash soup – the meat is delicious spooned up with the chunks of carrot, celeriac and mushroom, and a spoonful of soured cream gives a creamy finish. For a complete meal in a bowl, add some potato dumplings flavoured with onion and garlic.

Really tasty, it inspired me to add this, my first recipe submission. Basically it's duck's legs that I have had in the freezer for yonks and a fairly standard range of casserole ingredients with spices, red wine and damson jelly. A rich one pot meal that could also be done in a slow cooker I would think.
