Expert Tips

The addition of the fresh oranges, apple and onion enhances the natural flavor of wild duck. However, these ingredients do pick up the wild flavor from the cooking juices of the duck. Most people find they don't care for the flavor of the fruit and onion after it is cooked, so we suggest discarding them.
