The remarkable duck
The Gressingham Duck® is a remarkable breed, grown on Red Tractor assured farms in East Anglia and famous for its meaty succulence. Gressingham whole duck is fantastic with roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy.
The Gressingham breed came about when the small but flavourful wild Mallard was crossed with the larger Pekin, giving a meaty, succulent duck with more breast meat and less fat. Remember, if it's not from us, it's not Gressingham.
The cared-for duck
We breed, hatch, rear and then prepare the ducks by hand here in the neighbouring counties of Suffolk and Norfolk. We're a family-owned and run business, determined to do the right thing by our ducks.
Have a look at the underside of this label for a recipe idea and to discover more about what makes Gressingham Duck® so remarkable.

The easy-to-cook duck
Here are the details on roasting your Gressingham Duck® from chilled.
Preheat the oven to 220°C, Fan 200°C, Gas Mark 7.
Remove all the packaging. Take the bag of giblets out of the body cavity (they're useful for stock).
Weigh the duck without the giblets. It's important to do this - don't just use the weight on the label, as that includes the giblets.
Place on a rack in a roasting tin, prick the skin all over and rub a teaspoon of salt into the skin.
Roast in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes per 500g, plus 20 minutes extra.
Rest the duck for 10-20 minutes.
All ovens vary in performance, this is a guide only.

Gresingham Duck® with honey and rosemary jus and roast potatoes
Homely and satisfying, this roast works really well with carrots and broccoli on the side.
Along with the duck, you'll need:
4tbsp Gressingham Duck® fat
1kg roasting potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 garlic bulbs, halved
4 sprigs rosemary
1 onion, chopped
400ml chicken stock or water
250ml white wine
1. Start cooking the duck as detailed on the front of this label, with the addition of the duck fat in the roasting tray.
2. After 45 minutes, add the potatoes, rosemary, onion and garlic, baste and season. Continue to baste every half an hour.
3. When the duck is done according to the pack instructions, take it out of the oven and keep warm.
4. Move the potatoes to a baking tray, baste and continue to cook until done.
5. Pour off the fat from the first roasting tray and keep in a heatproof container for next time.
6. This will leave the juices, garlic and rosemary behind. Add the wine, bring to the boil and scrape the bits off the bottom. Strain into another pan, add the chicken stock, and reduce by half or until it starts to thicken. Stir in the butter and honey. Taste for seasoning and sweetness and adjust accordingly.
