Blackberry Chili Pepper Duck w/ Wild Rice

2 wild ducks – mallards, blacks, wigeon, gadwall or other “dabbling ducks”

halved & de-boned leaving breast and leg attached – skin on

2 cups duck stock – chicken stock can be substituted

8 oz. blackberry preserves

8 oz. dried cranberries

1 medium chili pepper

½ cup merlot

Crème De Cassis

1 tbsp. minced orange peel from fresh navel orange

1/2 cup real wild rice (usually from Minnesota)





Cover rice in pot with 1/2″ of water and a pinch of salt

Cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until all water is absorbed

Add 1 tbsp. water if necessary during cooking so as not to burn rice

Broil ducks for 4-6 minutes watching very carefully to brown and crisp the skin

Turn over – meat side up

Be sure not to overcook – meat should be red in center and not pink. If overcooked it will taste like liver.

Remove from heat

Pour drippings into sauce

Put sauce back on medium low heat, stirring in drippings

Add 1 tsp. Creme de Cassis

Cook for 2 minutes

Cook for 1 minute
