How to Make Roasted Duckling With A Crispy Skin


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Rinse the duck under cold water and pat it dry. Remove all excess fat from the cavity and around the neck area.
  3. Rub the duck all over, inside and out, with the orange. Sprinkle the duck with salt and pepper inside and out. Place 4 thyme sprigs along with the orange and apple quarters in the duck cavity.
  4. Roast 25-30 minutes per pound (2-2 3/4 hours). Baste with pan juices at regular intervals. The duckling is done when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 190.
  5. Remove the duckling and let rest on a platter 15 minutes before carving. Garnish with the remaining thyme sprigs.
