Duck over Apples

This makes a sweet duck with nice leftover broth for cooking rice or rice pilaf in.


  • Crockpot


  • 1 duck, whole, thawed
  • 4-6 apples, cored; similar height
  • Water to cover bottom of crockpot


  • Thaw duck; remove giblets and any sauce packs.
  • Core apples. Place in lightly greased crockpot. You want enough that the duck can rest on top of them. Add just enough water to cover bottom of crockpot.
  • Place duck breast side down on top of apples. Cover crockpot. Set to low heat for 7-9 hours.
  • Remove duck from crockpot, and allow to cool some. Remove meat from carcass and eat. Put broth over rice OR save to cook with rice later.
