Who is cooking a duckling this holiday season?

just wondering...how many of us are planning to include a roast duckling in our holiday plans?

i was just reading back through the "what to do with duck fat" thread from last summer, and it has me duck-hungry all over again. besides which, i really need to replenish my supply of rendered duck fat.

for anyone who will be cooking a duckling and could use some helpful duck prepping and roasting tips, be sure to check out andy m's recommended website which appears in that duck fat thread....

i'll be needing to pick up a can of bush's bavarian sauerkraut and a fresh bag of yukons to go with my bird....:)

who's in?

I would love to, but live in a house with 1800s technology. In other words, no exhaust fan in my kitchen. It would be so smoky! I'm mad at myself for not doing one on the grill this year!

i'm curious: would duckling be well out of season in the fall/winter? in other words, and not to disparage, would it be frozen duckling?

to my knowledge, bt, thanksgiving and christmastime is the traditionally "in season" time for duckling. roast duckling for the christmas table is certainnly a traditional bird to serve.

every place i've ever lived, ducklings tend to become available in the supermarkets around november, in time for the major holidays. most of my ducks have been frozen, but the few that were fresh ducklings were also purchased in november and december. for me, finding even a frozen duckling other times of the year, becomes a rather iffy proposition....

thanks, vit.

hmm, i questioned it purely out of seeing animals primarily breed in the spring. and from experience with breeding parrots, i wonder if breeding cycles were induced in a way to provide for a market.

enjoy it nonetheless. i hope i'm not coming across as contrary. not al all. again, curious.

That's one of the sites I referenced when I roasted my duck Thanksgiving. And that was the glaze I used, including on my grilled chicken wings last night.
