Directions:
Roast a duck in a 325º oven for 20-25 minutes per pound. Prick the skin several times to release the fat and baste the duck often.

Meanwhile grate coarsely the rind of 2 oranges and 1 lemon. Blanch the rind in boiling water for 20 seconds and drain it. In a small saucepan simmer 3 tbsp of vinegar with 1 tbsp of sugar until the mixture begins to caramelize. Add the juice of 2 oranges and the lemon, simmer together briefly and add the blanched rinds. When the duck is done, remove it to a hot platter and decorate it with thin slices of orange, peeled and halved. Skim all the excess fat from the pan juices. Pour in 2 tbsp Cointreau or brandy and 1/4 cup of hot chicken stock or consommé and scrape in all the brown glaze around the pan. Add this juice to the orange sauce, reheat it and serve it in a sauceboat.
