Baked Wild Duck
Remove feathers. Dress as any poultry. Wipe inside and outside with
a damp cloth. If ducks are old, parboil 15 minutes. Rub outer and inner
surface with salt and pepper. Truss. Cover the breast with thin strips
of salt pork. Place in baking pan. Cover. Add 1/2 cp boiling water.
Bake in hot oven (450 degrees F.) about 45 minutes, or until tender. Baste
frequently. Serve with a garnish of tart jelly. If desired, apple or New
England stuffing may be baked with the duck.
