DIRECTIONS

  • Check the ducks thoroughly for shot -- remove any shot with tweezers.
  • Place the cleaned ducks neck-up in a crock pot.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, blend the butter, soup, chicken stock, seasoned salt and wine.
  • Pour the soup blend into the crockpot, over the ducks and add in the carrots.
  • Cook on the HIGH setting for one hour and then reduce to the LOW setting for 5 more hours. Halfway through the cooking time, flip the ducks upside down. Check for tenderness at the end of the 5 hours and cook for another hour if necessary.
  • Serve with rice.
  • A TIP: If you have trouble removing the feathers after scalding the duck, then make up a blend of half parafin and half beeswax and pour a little over the duck -- let it harden for a minute and then pull the feathers off.
