 One 3 lb duck.  Wash it inside and out cut away any icky stuff if you see any.

Rub with olive oil and thyme, garlic salt, and rosemary. Stuff it with an apple that has been washed and quartered.  A large onion that has also been quartered, a lemon quarter it too. 4 to 5 cloves of garlic, crushed but not chopped and a bundle of fresh Thyme/rosemary and basil.

 Place sitting duck in the roaster with a little olive oil on the bottom.      

 Melt one stick of butter and combine with 1 cup of log cabin syrup pour mixture over duck just before going into the oven.

 Roast with out cover for 20 minutes.  Then turn back the temperature to 325 and roast 45 minutes, baste it. Now add to the pan 3 more cored and quartered apples and 1 large onion, maybe a few baby red potatoes with a mason-dixon line peeled around the center. A few carrots or other root vegetable. 

Roast another 45 minutes more or until the thigh is pulling away from the bird. 

Remove from oven and let stand on rack for 20 minutes.  Remove stuffing before serving or not.  Hell I don’t know, I left it in. I’m making this up.   

At this time remove the fruit and onions from the pan and hold in warming oven.

Time to make the gravy. 

 Time to eat it up. 

Note to readers….it turns out fantastic, but I saw it serve 3 watching the Super Bowl, four if you were expecting it.
