    echo echo's Note:

    Adapted from an old Craig Claiborne recipe I like very much. Cooking time is very approximate and may go longer than stated (the original recipe indicated only about 1 hour but I have not found it to be done in that time when using the size of duck indicated). Preparation time does not include letting duck dry overnight.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut off duck's wing tips and 2nd joints.
    2. 2
      Combine bean sauce through anise and rub the inside of the duck with the mixture.
    3. 3
      Sew the neck and tail openings securely.
    4. 4
      Bring 6 cups water to a boil.
    5. 5
      Place duck on a rack in your sink and pour 3 cups boiling water over the breast; turn over and pour on the rest of the boiling water so that all parts of the duck have been exposed to boiling water.
    6. 6
      Pat the duck dry.
    7. 7
      Combine vinegar and honey with 1 cup water; heat, stirring to blend smoothly; brush duck all over with the mixture.
    8. 8
      Slip a loop of string around the duck's neck and hang in a dry place overnight.
    9. 9
      Pre-heat oven to 450°F.
    10. 10
      Put the duck back-side-down on a rack in a roasting pan and roast at 450°F 6-10 minutes until golden brown.
    11. 11
      Turn with a towel (NOT a fork).
    12. 12
      Roast 8-10 minutes longer, making sure the duck does not burn.
    13. 13
      Reduce heat to 350°F and turn the duck onto its back once more, tent with foil and roast 20 minutes.
    14. 14
      Reduce heat to 300°F; roast 10 minutes.
    15. 15
      Reduce heat to 250°F; roast until tender (if used, a meat thermometer stuck in thickest part of thigh should register almost 180°F).
    16. 16
      Now increase heat to 450°F, remove foil and roast 10 minutes.
    17. 17
      Remove from oven and serve hot.
