    Ilysse's Note:

    I love this recipe and it goes very well with Latkes and applesauce for a yummy Hanukkah meal. The original recipe that I posted here is for duck but I have made this with a roaster chicken with wonderful results. From New Jewish Cooking by Elizabeth Wolf Cohen.

    1. 1
      Rinse duck under cold water and pat dry inside and out. Remove excess fat from the bird.
    2. 2
      Season bird, inside and out, with salt and pepper and prick skin with a fork several times to allow fat to escape. Place orange quarters in cavity.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and 1 teaspoon salt with 4 tablespoons orange juice.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    5. 5
      Place the sliced onion and carrot into a roasting pan and place duck on a rack on top.
    6. 6
      Roast duck 30 minutes then remove from oven. Pour off fat, prick skin again and baste with the orange juice mixture.
    7. 7
      Continue cooking, basting it and pouring off the fat every 20 minutes until it is well browned and skin is crisp, 1 1/2 hours or until it is done.
    8. 8
      Remove the duck to a platter and cover with foil. Let stand 15 minutes.
    9. 9
      Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from the pan. Stir in flour. Cook, stirring and scraping the drippings from the pan about 2 minutes. Stir in remaining orange juice, chicken stock, vinegar and marmalade.
    10. 10
      Bring to a boil and simmer until well blended and thickened, 3 to 4 minutes.
    11. 11
      To serve, quarter the duck, or carve to your liking. Serve the gravy on the side.

      This was the most amazing tasting duck I have ever had. We cooked the recipe as is, with duck, and I swear I almost could have had the leftover gravy with a straw. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
