These duck kegs are consistently good, not overly fatty. Cooked in a very hot oven initially to crisp up the skin and well seasoned with cayenne pepper as well as pepper and salt, then slow cook until the flesh drops off the bone - delicious paired with stir-fry vegetables and noodles and hoi-sin stir fry sauce. Yum!
One niggle: I’ve noticed that when I bought these as part of a 3 for 2 in June each pack weighed 462g (which shows on the current Ocado photo) but the ones delivered the other day (also 3 for 2) are marked as weighing 440g. So a stealth reduction by Gressingham and Ocado needs to change its photograph before Trades Descriptions gets in on the act.
