Can't I dry roast duck, like I would a chicken or turkey? And what temperature is best? Is it 20 minutes a pound, like chicken is? Please help me with a primer on duck!!!!!! Thank you.
I'm also wondering-- if you have small children, would you TELL them it's duck? I'm thinking DD might refuse to eat it, if she knows it used to be a cute duck like on her grandma's lake. Does it look/taste enough like chicken that I'd get away with fibbing and telling her it's chicken? I know she'll like it once she tries it. She knows that chicken is a chicken, and she's okay with it, but we've never encouraged her to think of chickens in an anthropomorphic way-- but my mom has NAMES for all her ducks, and lets my kids feed them.
