Disclosure: Nordic Ware sent me the free product (the beautiful 10 inch braiser pan you see on the photos) to try out – I’m loving my new pan and providing a brief review of this pan in this post. I was not compensated for this post other than receiving the 10 inch braiser pan for free! All opinions are my own.

Ever wondered how to cook duck? It’s much simpler than most people think. This Roast Duck has tender and juicy meat, crispy skin, and it’s glazed with the honey-balsamic glaze to give the duck a beautiful roasted look. It’s a great looking dish – perfect for any special occasion, and with the holidays coming up, this duck will work great on any Thanksgiving dinner menu, or as a Christmas dinner idea.  By the way, the honey-balsamic glaze in this recipe DOES NOT MAKE THE DUCK SWEET – I did not want a sweet duck.  It only gives the nice crispiness and beautiful look to the duck skin.  Your duck will have a very savory and juicy flavor from the garlic and lemon that you’ll stuff inside the duck cavity. SO GOOD! [click to continue…]
