Duck stuffed with rice and apples

For stuffing, we need a fairly largeduck carcass. So, having decided to cook a duck in this way, choose a bird weighing not less than two and a half kilograms. And yet, it is desirable to stuff a duck on the evening before the festive feast, but you need to prepare it immediately before serving. Ingredients:

  • Duck carcass - 2.5-3 kg;
  • Loose rice - 1,5-2 cups;
  • Apples - 4 pieces;
  • Orange - 2 pieces;
  • Butter - 3 tablespoons;
  • Salt - 1 tablespoon;
  • Paprika - 1 teaspoon;
  • Curry - 1 teaspoon;
  • Granulated garlic;
  • Black ground pepper;
  • Dried basil;
  • Ground coriander;
  • Chilli.

Preparation: If the duck is frozen, then it must be defrosted beforehand. And it is advisable to do this not in the refrigerator and not in the microwave. Leave the carcass unfrozen at room temperature, put in a bowl and cover with a clean towel. From the carcass we take out all the giblets and fat that are inside. Bird washed, if necessary, we sing, remove all hemp from the skin and again mine (especially carefully - inside). Now prepare the carcass for the stuffing. Any strong thread sews the upper holes in the carcass (where there used to be a neck) and prepare the mixture for the marinade. Mix a tablespoon of salt with a teaspoon of paprika, a teaspoon of curry and a teaspoon of a mixture of coriander, black pepper, basil, granulated garlic and chili peppers. Note that these last ingredients in the sum should amount to a volume equal to one teaspoonful. So we need to mix a tablespoon of salt with three teaspoons of spices. Now carefully rub this duck mixture on the outside and inside and leave to marinate. Yes, about a teaspoon of this mixture is left for the filling. In the meantime, we are preparing the filling, which we will stuff the duck. Pour into a pan two or three liters of water, put in it half a tablespoon of salt and let the water boil. Now we fall asleep in boiling water one and a half cups of rice and cook it almost until it is ready. That is, when taking a sample, we must feel that the grain is not yet slightly finished. So, cooked to this state, rice is thrown to a colander and thoroughly washed under cold water, and when the water from the rice is completely drained, put it into a bowl. Add the remaining mixture of salt and seasonings to the rice and pour the melted butter. Stirring. Now we peel the two peas from the two apples, cut out the middle with the seeds, and cut the flesh into small cubes. We also peel one orange from the peel, take out the seeds and, as far as possible, purify all the white fibers. Citrus is also cut into small pieces and placed with apples in rice. Mix the filling again, taste it and add salt if necessary. It remains to stuff the duck. We fill the filling with a duck carcass and sew a cut on the stomach with a firm thread. Ideally, the bird should be left for a few hours in the refrigerator. Before cooking, take out the stuffed carcass, cover it with vegetable or butter, or use mayonnaise or sour cream for this purpose. Utjatnitsy grease from the inside with vegetable oil, put the duck into it with the back down, so that the wings of the duck are tightly pressed to the sides. The remaining two apples and one orange are cleaned, as for the filling, only cut into larger pieces. Pour the fruit with spices and lay them on top of the carcass. We set the Utitnitsa in a preheated oven and cook for at least three hours at a temperature of 200-220 degrees. During this time we turn the carcass several times. We check the readiness, puncture the carcass with a knife. If the transparent juice appears in the puncture site, then our duck is ready. We remove the prepared duck from the oven, remove the seams and scrape the filling. Rice with apples are placed on a large dish, and on top of it we lay out the duck cut into pieces. We pour the fat from the carcass and serve it on the table. duck with apples and rice

We set the pan with a bird in a preheated oven and bake it until the apples are ready. When the apples become soft, we take them out, put them back, turn the duck carcass and continue baking it until the meat is ready. We check the readiness by making a puncture on the carcass. If a clear juice appears in the puncture site (cut), then the bird is ready. We take it out of the oven, release it from the filling and cut it into portions.
