A co-worker recently gifted us with seven freshly hunted ducks. While I’ve cooked duck a few times before, we’ve not yet had the full prepping/de-feathering experience. A mess was made. Luv helped The Mister and Bugsy curiously watched. I helped where ever I could and went to town, cleaning the kitchen afterward.

With plenty of duck to experiment with I set out to try something new – rich with seasonal flavors.

  2. Heat the remaining tablespoon of duck fat in a stock pot. Add green onions and sauté 4 minutes. Add garlic, sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, apples, and cranberries - bring to a simmer. Cover and let cook 15-20 minutes until sweet potatoes are just fork tender.
