Hagen's Christmas ducks come from Milawa Farm by the idyllic town of Milawa, about a three-hour drive from Melbourne towards the NSW border. The ducks spend their lives outside in the paddock grazing, roaming and scratching. The birds are a strong cross-breed of Mascovie, Indian Runner, Aylesbury and Pekin ducks.
Duck at Christmas is nostalgic as they come - remember the 1983 class A Christmas Story? A roast duck is moist, flavoursome and slightly more forgiving to an overcooking. For a perfectly crispy skin, drying the skin by patting down with paper towel before oil, salt and popping in the oven on high heat. Once browned, reduce the heat and cook through.
