Yield: 4 Servings
|2 quarts||Sauerkraut (i prefer kraut packed in glass rather than cans.)|
|2 smalls||Yellow onions; peeled|
|3 tablespoons||Brown sugar|
|Fresh ground black pepper; to taste|
Place the duck in a roasting pan and roast in a 400ø oven until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Remove and cool a bit. Disregard the fat in the pan.
Place the duck in a very close-fitting casserole and pack the sauerkraut around and under the duck. Put the remaining kraut, along with the juice, on top. Add the onions to the pot. Add 1 cup of water and top with the sugar and black pepper.
Cover and bake at 325ø until the duck is very tender, about 1-½ hours.
It is traditional to serve this dish with rich mashed potatoes.
This very rich dish needs a green salad and a big bowl of creamy mashed potatoes.
