  3. Dealing with duck can be a real pain in the *ss! If you must have duck, buy it in a Chinese restaurant or grocery store fully prepared, and save yourself the hassle of preparing it yourself.

    Either that, or marry a Chinese woman from Bejing. Only, dealing with her may prove more difficult than making your own peiping duck.

  4. ps ...and if you don't like your duck "fatty", try poking a hole in the skin 3/4 of the way through the cooking process and allow it to drain out!
    :P

  5. Some duck's skins, like many diner's skins, are thicker than others.

  6. I've found several different duck dishes at one of our local Thai restaurants to be eminently satisfactory.

    At home mother used to roast a duckling, as she called it, once or twice a year. She always used a folding metal rack to suspend the fowl above the roasting pan, which collected most of the fat as it dripped from the carcass. After discarding most of the fat she prepared wonderful sauces with the drippings using herbs and oranges or Bing Cherries.

    If I remember rightly, she'd put pieces of apple, onion, a coarsely cot up celery rib, and a sprig of fresh rosemary inside the bird after dusting the cavity with S&P and some powered sage.

    I was aways surprised at how little actual meat and much bone we'd find on these birds, so we usually roasted two at a time.

    It was always very good. Makes me hungry just to think about it.

    Local restaurants too usually offered "roast duckling a l'orange" or with "sauce bigarade." Usually served with spiced apples, wild rice, and spinach, broccoli or green beans. Topped off with either a chocolate, strawberry or butterscotch "parfait" or a nice piece of fruit or berry pie "a la mode" it made dinng out on Sundays a very pleasant experience.

    Those WERE the days!

  7. We are newly vegan, due to our discovery of the horrors of factory farming. You would be surprised at how easy it is to maintain!

    Thank you for visiting me today and during the Summer. When I see your name in my email I know I am in for a treat!
