The Art of French Cooking by Fernande Garvin This is the family version of the classsic duck a'l'orange. It is surprisingly simple when compared to the classic one, and tastes just as good.

In mixing bowl, combine marmalade, soy sauce amd salt. Roast duck at 450* for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 400* and continue roasting, brushing occassionally with half of the orange mixture, for 30 minutes, or until meat is tender.

Meanwhile, heat butter in small saucepan. Add flour and cook until flour is browned. Stir in wine, vinegar and consomme. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining orange mixture.

Cover and continue simmering for 10 minutes more. Add pepper.

Meanwhile, cook orange wedges in boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain. Keep warm.

Remove duck to heated serving dish and keep warm. Pour excess fat off the duck pan. Add remaining cooking liquid to saucepan in which orange sauce is cooking. Mix.
