The duck does not appear on our tables as often as other types of birds, therefore, it is rather the prerogative of a festive feast. If you want to decorate your table, then cook the duck in the oven.
I want to share my recipe on how to cook duck with apples in the oven. It is not difficult to prepare such a dish, but it will become a decoration of the festive table. The readiness of the duck must be checked by piercing it with a wooden stick or fork. If light juice flows out, then it is ready, and if pink, let it be baked. It is better not to eat apples that were baked directly in the carcass, as they absorb too much fat.

How to cook "Duck with apples in the oven"
1 Prepare the carcass and rub the spices inside and out. 2 Cut sour apples into small wedges. 3 Place a layer of chopped apples on the bottom of the roaster or baking dish. 4 Stuff the belly of the duck with apple slices and peeled whole garlic cloves and sew up with cooking thread. 5 Lay the duck belly up. Place the apples around it so that the carcass does not come into contact with the walls of the mold. Put the rest of the apples on top. 6 Pour 0.5 cups of water into a mold. Cover with a lid and bake in an oven preheated to 200 degrees for 1.5 hours. Then remove the lid and bake for another 1.5 hours.
