6 lb. duck, 1/8 cup salt, lots of fresh cracked pepper, 1 TBS caraway seeds. Mixed together, spread over and inside duck. Omitted water entirely. Foil covered & roasted for 30 min. on 375, then uncovered and roasted at 325-350 for 2 hrs. Crispy skin & fall-off-the-bone meat! Thanks!

Ok the real czech way is you put the duck on the breast side for an hour covered, then turn the breast side up for another hour covered again and then for tha last hour, put it down on the breast side, uncovered and we put water every 15 minutes on it, this way is really delicious and crispy :-)
