Duck breast with dried cranberries, cream and raspberry jam.

I am back!!! it has been a long while since my last posting and I really missed sitting in front of my computer typing away and sharing with all of you.

We are almost ready for Christmas. My cookie baking will start today, and will share those wonderful little morsels of delight later.
But now, back to dinner… Nothing sais Holiday cooking as duck does.  Alright… I can have duck all year round, but to me the texture  and richness of the meat paired with a sauce, is the perfect portrayal of a cold night, to be enjoyed with a full body red wine, a fire roaring in the fireplace… What can I say… I am a romantic even during a school night.

Last night duck breast with dried cranberries, heavy cream and raspberry jam brought that feeling upon us even thou we did not have the fireplace with a warm roaring fire.
A mixed salad, romaine, spinach and red leaf with a vinaigrette was the only side dish.

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup finely chopped dried cranberries

  3. Remove from the oven and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
