Wild Mallard

Autumn has arrived and with it the shooting season has begun. I picked up two beautiful looking mallards last night and spent a few hours getting reacquainted with how to pluck. Their throats were full of acorns that they had obviously just picked up before they were shot...

An acorn fed wild duck sounds pretty delicious to me... Ideas of confit, terrines and roasts are all floating around for this weekend. I thought I'd introduce the little fellas to you before I got started...
