Duck large (feeds 4)
Seasonal organic veg box - medium
Duck: 2 hours before cooking, lightly prick the skin all over and season generously with salt and pepper. Remove the bag of giblets from the cavity. Preheat the oven to 220°C, cover the duck with foil and roast for 30 mins. Remove the foil, baste with the fat and reduce the heat to 180°C. Roast for 30 mins per kilo, basting again halfway through. To check the bird is cooked, insert a sharp knife into the thickest part of the leg where it joins the breast; the juices should run clear. Leave to rest for 20 mins before carving. Use the giblets and wing tips for stock/gravy.
