Final Notes for the Slow-Roast Duck Recipe with Sauerkraut and Apples
➡️ The roasted whole duck recipe is one of the delicacies that we can enjoy in autumn and winter, seasons when ducks become robust and have sweet and juicy meat.
➡️ Although some consider duck meat to be too fatty, if prepared properly, the slow-roast duck in the oven is a delicacy that all gourmets adore! Therefore, the wonderful oven-roasted duck is one of my favorite food recipes and I prepare it whenever I have the opportunity. In fact, in many countries, roast duck is preferred instead of turkey and is cooked even for Christmas.
➡️ The roasted whole duck recipe can be prepared in many ways, with or without filling. Most people prefer sauerkraut because the pickled cabbage sourness compensates for the heavier and more succulent meat of the bird.
➡️ On this page I share the recipe for slow-roast duck with sauerkraut that I often cook for the whole family. I mix the sour cabbage with apples and onions to get a more refined taste, which contributes to both the thyme and garlic introduced in the duck.
➡️ In order to get the perfect taste for the roast I make, I use commonly a more aromatic dry white wine such as Chardonnay or Muskat-Ottonel, for example. Of course, you can even cook roasted duck without wine if you do not have this ingredient or don’t want to use it.
➡️ My whole duck recipe is very easy to prepare, does not require many ingredients, and is ready in a very reasonable time for a more demanding main dish.
➡️ Once it’s ready, I recommend you cover the roast with foil (instead, you can simply leave it in the oven after you turn the heat off) and wait about half an hour to thoroughly soak the flavored juices in the meat before slicing it. I assure you that slow roast duck with sauerkraut will be magnificent!
➡️ Duck is definitely not a food for everyone. Even if it is highly appreciated by gourmets, those who are not used to duck since childhood or do not have a vast culinary horizon, will not eat this delicacy with pleasure. As I wrote above, I love eating duck and one of my favorites is this recipe for slow-roast duck with sauerkraut and apples.
➡️ I recommend this recipe because it will allow you to enjoy the duck meat at its true value – it will be tender and tasty, and in combination with pickled cabbage and apples it turns into a royal treat that is hard to forget even for those who are used to refined foods.
