Pot Roast Duck Legs in Marmalade Sauce


4 Duck legs
1 Orange
8 Shallots
3 Tablespoon marmalade
4 Tablespoons grapefruit juice
2 Cloves garlic
Small amount of ginger

Serve with cubed swede, parsnip and potato mash.

Roast Duck legs and shallots in a pan with lid off at 200 for 40 minutes, having rubbed in olive oil and salt and pepper

Remove from heat and allow to cool .

Mix marmalade, grapefruit juice, ginger and crushed garlic.
Cut orange into 8, add to pot and cover.

Cook for further 40 minutes

What actually happened

We actually served with plain potato mash, white cabbage and spinach.
The main dish was very successful.

For next time

The white cabbage and swede both made the best of the gorgeous marmalade sauce.
Lose the spinach. Keep plain potato, but do not mash.
Not sure parsnip or sweet potato would have worked.
