Roast, uncovered in a slow over 325F 3 hours, or until drumstick joints
move easily and ducklings are a rich golden-brown. (During roasting, pierce
skin with fork several times. Also to keep fat from smoking, dip it from
the roasting pan into a bowl several times during cooking. There will be as
much as 6 cupfuls.) 4. Cut 2 ducklings into quarters. (Poultry sheers do a
fast job.) Arrange on a heated serving platter. Serve with Golden Gravy and
Pumpernickel Stuffing ( Set other duckling aside to cool.) 5. Wrap cooled
duckling; chill with 4 cups of Duck Giblet Broth or Duck Pilaf for another
meal. DUCK GIBLET BROTH Combine giblets (except liver) and necks with 1
medium-size onion, chopped; handful of celery tops; 2 teaspooons of salt;

cups. Save 4 cups for making Duck Pilaf, Grind or chop giblets and add to
remaining 2 cups broth for Golden Gravy. Makes 6 cups. GOLDEN GRAVY Remove
rack from roasting pan. Tip pan and our off all fat into a bowl. Return 4
tablespoons to pan; blend with 4 tablespoons flour; cook stirring all the
