Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Cook the Potato

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Chop the potato into 2cm chunks (no need to peel!). Pop the potato chunks on a large baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat in the oil, then roast onto the top shelf of your oven until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.


Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Quarter the apple and remove the core. Thinly slice, then chop the slices into thin matchsticks. Pick the rosemary leaves from their stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks).

Fry the Duck

Pop a frying pan on medium high heat (no oil). Once hot, season the duck all over and lay the duck in the pan skin side down, fry until the skin is golden, 5 mins. Lower the heat to medium if it's browning too quickly. Turn and brown the flesh side for 1 minute then transfer to the baking tray with the potatoes, keep the pan! IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw meat!

Roast the Duck

Pour some of the duck fat over the top of the potatoes, then return the tray to the top shelf of the oven and cook until the duck is cooked and the potatoes are roasted, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: The duck is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw duck and its packaging. Once cooked, transfer your duck to a board and cover with foil. Leave to rest for a few mins.

Fry the Greens

While your duck cooks, return the now-empty frying pan to a medium heat with a glug of oil. Once hot, add the spring greens, apple and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry until the greens have just wilted, then stir in the garlic and a small knob of butter (if you have some). Cook for one minute then transfer the greens into a bowl. Covered with foil to keep warm while you make the drizzle.

Finish and Serve

Pop the redcurrant jelly and water (see ingredients for amount) into a saucepan on medium high heat. Bring to the boil, stirring continuously to melt the jelly. Bubble until glossy, 1-2 mins. Remove from the heat. Once the duck has rested, slice thinly and stir any resting juices into the drizzle. Share the potatoes and greens between your plates and lay the duck on top. Spoon the drizzle over the top of the duck. Enjoy!
