Method

To make the sauce, place the port and the dried cherries in a medium saucepan, along with the sugar and wine vinegar. Bring the mixture up to a gentle simmer, give it all a good stir and let it barely simmer, without a lid, for 40–45 minutes, stirring from time to time. What will happen is that the wine vinegar will slowly reduce so there are only about 4 tablespoons of liquid left.

Serve the sauce warm with the confit of duck.

Confit of Duck

Allow four weeks for the flavours of this confit to develop fully… a French classic that would make a good special-occasion dish as, once it's ready, you just need to cook it in the oven for 25 minutes.
