Other sizes of duck
The Roast Duck with Sour Cherry Sauce in the Winter Collection is a great recipe but I sometimes have difficulty getting a duck of a weight close to the 2.7kg recommended. Often local supermarket ducks are considerably smaller and those from local farms are much larger. The last one I purchased was 3.4 kg and that was one of the smallest available! I wasn't sure how much additional time to add for such a large duck. So...
please could you advise what range of weight of duck would still cook well in the 2.5 hr cooking time? and,
what time for a smaller bird? what time for a really large bird?
