    3 to 4 lb. All-Natural Muscovy Duck
    1 cup fresh orange juice
    2 tbsp. almonds, chopped
    2 tsp. flour
    3 oranges, quartered
    Pepper, freshly ground


    Puncture the skin of the duck in various places with a sharp 2-tined fork to release fat. Place the duck in a large pan with enough boiling water to cover. Boil briskly for half an hour.
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, combine orange juice, almonds, flour, salt, and pepper.
    Remove duck from boiling water and drain. When cool enough to handle, rub orange mixture inside and outside of duck. Place on a rack in a roasting pan and surround duck with orange sections.
    Roast uncovered for 1 hour, basting every 30 minutes. Raise oven heat to 375°F, and continue roasting for another half-hour, basting frequently.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve with fried rice (with garlic butter), Brussels sprouts, and a Burgundy wine.
