Honey and Spice Duckling
Our thanks to Mindy McIntosh for sending in this recipe

~ 1 3 to 5 lb duckling
~ 2 tsp Szechwan pepper, coarsely ground, or 1 tsp whole pepper, coarsely ground
~ 1 tsp salt
~ 1 tsp ground ginger
~ 1/2 tsp five spice powder
~ 1/4 cup honey
~ 2 tbs soy sauce

Rinse duck and pat dry.

In a bowl, combine pepper, salt, ginger, and five -spice powder.

Sprinkle body cavity of duck with some of the salt mixture; rub remaining mixture on the skin of the duck.

Skewer neck skin to back; tie legs to tail and twist wing tips under back. Prick skin all over with a fork.

Place duckling, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Roast in a 375 degree oven for 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours or until the drumsticks move easily in their sockets and the duck is no longer pink. Spoon off fat occasionally.

Meanwhile, mix the honey and the soy sauce together.

Baste duck with honey mixture once or twice during the last 10 minutes of roasting.

Serve and Enjoy.
