Roast Duck

From Citrus County Locally Grown

<p>This recipe uses a Cayuga duck, which is a heritage duck. Preparation is easy, cooking time is longer at a lower temperature, which ensures a succulent, tender, flavorful meat. Pared with roast potatoes and peas or your favorite veggies. A meal to remember. (I do!!!)<br /> Enjoy.</p>
