I saw this episode as well, but forget why he did this?Was it just to crisp up the skin or were there other reasons?
He left it salted in the refrigerator to dry it out.
you left out slitting the duck skin
Think this would work for just a duck breast? For those of us that don't have an entire family to feed at Christmas.
I don't see why it wouldn't. Just cut the cooking time down. I'm surprised he didn't use his probe thermometer for it. I guess it's too small to worry about.
Do the sugar plums go in the frige to dry out?
No, Jazztsax.On the counter for a few hours or overnight covered with a towel.
Sadly I can't find the Wassel recipe.
Here's the Wassail recipe:http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/wassail-recipe/index.html
So has anyone tried this recipe? I am ordering a pekin duck online, and before I turn 30 bucks into duck salad, I'd like to know what I'm up against... On FN it did not get good reviews, although I do realize, its not just the method but the cook behind it ;)
I definately take those reviews with a grain of salt. I'll let you know how mine turns out. My duck should be here today or tomorrow! Most of those people are just a fan of the different shows and not necessarily culinarily advanced :P.
Guys, my duck turned out great and everybody liked it. It turned out just like it did on his show. The dressing was outstanding and I plan to do that again.
