Roast Duckling with Raspberry Sauce
- Rinse inside of duckling; pat dry with paper towels. Skewer neck skin to back (see photo 2); tie legs to tail. Twist wing tips under back (see photo 4). Place duckling, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a fork, prick skin generously. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Roast, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 90 minutes to 2 hours or until the drumsticks move easily in their sockets (180 degrees F). Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving.
- Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan combine orange juice, broth, and brandy. Bring to boiling. Cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat about 8 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 1/4 cup. Stir in 1/4 cup of the raspberries, the raspberry preserves, ginger, allspice, and dash salt. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in butter until melted. Stir in remaining raspberries, the walnuts, and sage. (If using frozen raspberries, heat until raspberries are thawed and sauce is heated through.)
- To carve ducking, if desired, remove the skin. Using a sharp knife, cut duckling along the backbone. Cut downward, removing meat from ribs. Cut the wings and legs from the duckling. Slice breast meat. Serve with raspberry sauce. Makes 4 servings.

We followed the recipe precisely, used blackberry brandy in the sauce, and the end result was to die for. One of the top two sauces I have tasted in my life, I would say. We did judge the raspberry sauce would be fabulous with turkey as well, and probably any game bird, maybe even roast pork.
