I cooked this for my fiancee's birthday and it it was a hit. I had to cook the duck longer than in the recipe but it came frozen and must not have thawed all the way out over night. The lingon berries go great with the duck too, it reminded everyone of Thanksgiving dinner. If you like duck you should try this out.
AMAZING...this is a great recipe it works with chicken (which I mistook for a duck, that's how cooking illiterate I am). Anyways I ran out of garlic so I used about 1 1/2 tablespoon of garlic salt and I didn't have any hard cider so I used white wine (a nice Riesling, you know what they say "if you won't drink it than don't cook with it"). The chicken was so moist and full of flavor, which is amazing because I always over cook my chicken, I would say this recipe is foolproof!
It was a nice surprise when we had this dish. I like lingonberries a lot and it was very nice to use them with the sauce. (We get our lingonberry preserves at Ikea.) We made a really flavorful broth with the leftover duck and keep it in the freezer, preserved into frozen cubes. We'll have duck more often!
