      Title: Long island duck with grapefruit
 Categories: Poultry, Masterchefs, New york, 24fa
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      2    Duck, Long Island, (about
           -- five pounds each)
      2    Grapefruit
    1/4 c  Sugar
    1/3 c  Vinegar, red wine
      3 c  Duck stock ** OR
      3 c  Veal stock **
           Blanched vegetables ***
 
       ** See recipes for Duck Stock and Veal Stock.
  
       *** An assortment of blanched vegetables should be used as
  garnish for this dish.  You might consider using green beans,
  asparagus, broccoli, or julienne of carrots, zucchini, turnips, tied
  into bundles with strips of blanched leek
  
       Place the duck, uncovered, in the refrigerator for 4 days to dry
  out the skin.
  
       Preheat the oven to 500 F.
  
       Cut off the tail and excess neck skin from the ducks and remove
  all excess fat.  Place the ducks, breasts up on a rack in a roasting
  pan. Tuck wing tips under.  Roast until crisp and well browned, about
        1    hour.
  
       With a sharp paring knife, remove a thin slice from the top and
  bottom of each grapefruit, then remove the skin of the fruit in long
  strips. Set aside.
  
       Cutting between the membrane, cut the grapefruit into sections
  and set aside.
  
       Place the sugar and wine vinegar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  Cook over medium high heat until the vinegar has evaporated and the
  sugar has caramelized lightly.
  
       Carefully add the stock and bring the mixture to a boil.  Simmer
  at low boil for 5 minutes.
  
       Add grapefruit skins to the mixture and simmer 3 minutes longer.
  
       Strain the mixture into a clean saucepan and simmer until reduced
  enough to coat a spoon lightly.
  
       Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and keep it warm.
  
       Transfer the duck to a work surface.  Run a sharp knife under the
  wishbone at the front of the duck's breast, then carefully slip the
  knife between each breast half and carcass.  Remove the breasts, and
  then take off the legs and thighs in one piece.
  
       Lightly coat a warm serving plate with the sauce.  Place the
  duck over the sauce and arrange the grapefruit sections, overlapping,
  on top. Garnish with blanched vegetables as desired, and serve,
  passing the rest of the sauce around separately.
