Roast the Carrots

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
Bring a large saucepan of water with 1/2 tsp salt to the boil.
Trim and halve the chantenay carrots lengthways (no need to peel). Pop onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
Pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. Add to the carrot tray.
When the oven is hot, put the tray on the top shelf to roast for 10 mins.

Boil the Potatoes

Meanwhile, peel and chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks.
When the pan of water is boiling, add the potatoes and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.

Get Frying

When the carrots have roasted for 5 mins, put a frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).
Once hot, lay the duck in the pan, skin-side down, and fry until the skin is golden, 6-8 mins. Flip, then sear the other side for 1 min more.
Take the carrot tray out the oven, remove the garlic parcel and set aside, then turn the carrots.
Add the duck to the baking tray, skin-side up. Drizzle with honey and return to the top shelf to roast for the remaining cooking time, 16-18 mins. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw duck and its packaging.

Make the Redcurrant Jus

While the duck and carrots roast, drain any excess fat from the frying pan and return to medium heat.
Pour in the water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount), redcurrant jelly and red wine stock paste.
Bring to the boil, stirring to combine, then simmer until rich and glossy, 6-8 mins. Add a splash of hot water to loosen if needed.
Meanwhile, finely chop the parsley (stalks and all).

Garlic Mash Time

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan, off the heat.
Once the garlic has roasted and cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork, then add to the potatoes.
Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid to keep warm.


When the duck is cooked, transfer to a board and leave to rest for a few mins before slicing each breast widthways into 5 slices. IMPORTANT: The duck is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Share the garlic mash between your plates. Lay the sliced duck on top and spoon over the redcurrant jus.
Serve with the roasted carrots alongside and sprinkle over the parsley to finish.
