Baked Whole Duck Stuffed with Apples.

It’s a great holiday dish, and flavours of duck and apples, infused in to each other, make this dish very memorable. You can also add some dry fruits, if you like, but i will stick to green apples only.


Duck- 1 whole- appr. 2 kg/4.4 pounds

Apples- green 5-6 , cored and cut in wedges.

Salt – 1 tablespoon.

Black pepper- 1 tablespoon.

Honey- 1/2 cup.

Garlic- 3 cloves, grated/mashed.

Oil- 1-2 tablespoons.


Pre-heat the oven to 220C/428F. Line a baking tray with foil.

Wash, and dry duck with a paper towel. Mix salt , pepper and oil in a bawl, and rub the duck with it inside and out.

Then, mix honey with garlic and rub the duck inside and out with a mixture, and let it sit for 30-45 minuets.

Stuff the cavity with green apples , as much as you can fit , then either stitch it or use tooth picks to close it.


Cover with another foil sheet and place the duck in the oven for an hour and a half. Every half an hour take it out and baste it with juices, that leaked on a tray.

After 1 hour reduce the heat to 160C/320F ,remove the top foil and bottom foil, scatter the rest of apples around the duck and cook for another 30 minuets.
