Roast teal

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N teal
2 \N apples, peeled, cored and
1 \N halved
8 \N strips of bacon
½ cup port wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup plum or red currant jelly
2 teaspoons flour
1 \N salt and pepper to taste

Salt and pepper the birds inside and out, and place half an apple in each bird. Truss the bird so as to bind down the 2 slices of bacon that you wrap around each teal. Place in a roasting pan. In a small skillet heat the wine and lemon juice, then stir in and dissolve the jelly. Ladle it over the birds and roast at 400 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes depending on how rare you like your duck. Remove the ducks to a platter and make the sauce by skimming off the bacon fat, then stirring in over a low flame the flour and two tablespoons of water. Simmer until the sauce is thick, pour it over the birds and serve.
