Crunchy Roast Duck with Turnips

ingredients

serves 6
1 tbsp olive oil
6 duck legs
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
6 shallots, peeled
12 baby turnips, trimmed
1 large cooking apple, peeled, cored and chopped
20 g flour
300 ml cider
100 ml vegetable stock

method

1. Heat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.

2. Place the olive oil in a large, heavy-based roasting tin and heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Stab the duck legs all over with a fork, rub with seasoning, then place in the roasting tin and cook for 20 minutes. Turn the duck legs, and add the whole shallots and turnips to the roasting tin. Baste with the fat, reduce the heat to 180°C/gas 4 and roast for a further 20 minutes.

3. Turn the duck legs again, and add the apple, moving the roasting vegetables to ensure they cook evenly. Roast for a further 20 minutes or until the duck is golden and crunchy and the vegetables soft and browned.
Remove the duck and vegetables from the roasting tin and place them on a warm serving dish. Drain off excess fat (reserve it for roasting or sauteing potatoes) and add the flour to the tin, mixing it in vigorously to make a roux.

4. Then slowly add the cider and vegetable stock, stirring well to mix in the roasting flavours in the pan. Place directly over a medium heat and bring to a simmer, constantly stirring. Check the seasoning, pour over the duck and the roasted vegetables, and serve.
