  1. Pull neck skin of duckling to back; fasten with a skewer. Tie drumsticks to tail. Twist wing tips under back. Place bird, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Prick skin. Insert a meat thermometer into breast (the bulb should not touch the bone).
  2. Roast in a 375 degree F oven for 1-3/4 to 3 hours (25 to 30 minutes per pound) or until temperature reaches 180 degrees F to 185 degrees F. The drumsticks should move easily.
  3. Meanwhile, for sauce, pour enough boiling water over dried mushrooms to cover. Let stand for 30 minutes; drain.
  4. In a saucepan cook mushrooms and onions in margarine or butter about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in sugar. Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are glazed. Stir in flour. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes more or until flour is brown.
  5. Add beef broth, tomato paste, herb, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1-2/3 cups.
  6. To carve duck, remove the skin, if desired. With a sharp knife, slice duck along the backbone. Slice downward, cutting meat from ribs. Remove wings and legs. Slice breast meat. Serve with sauce.

I made this for Thanksgiving last year. I made a few substitutions, and it still turned out great. Instead of dried mushrooms, I used lots of portabellos, and I jused chopped onion instead of the frozen onions. It was absolutely marvelous. My guests loved it.

This recipe turned out great. I followed the same advice as the person who reviwed it before me. My guests commented that it was tasty and the texture of the meat was good. I recommend this recipe for anyone who is trying duck for the first time.
