Print Recipe


  • 2 pieces duck legs
  • 2 pieces duck breasts not necessary
  • 1 piece red onion thicker slice
  • 4 pieces garlic cloves little crushed
  • 6 pieces prunes
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 50 ml roze wine or red wine
  • 100 ml water
  • 3 springs thyme
  • 2 teaspoons marjoram
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil


  • Slightly cut the duck thighs and breasts so that the fat under the skin drains more easily. I sliced the onion into thicker slices and I crushed the garlic a little with the knife blade.
  • Season the duck legs and breasts with salt and pepper and place them on the bottom of the tray. Sprinkle the prunes among them, place the onion slices on top, pour a little honey on top, the garlic cloves and season with marjoram and a few sprigs of thyme. Pour about 50 ml of rose wine, 100 ml of water and about 50 ml of sunflower oil.
  • Cover the tray with aluminium foil and put it in the preheated oven at 240 degrees, about 15-20 minutes. After that, reduce the temperature to 130 degrees and braise for another hour. After an hour, take the foil off the tray and put it back in the oven for another 20 minutes.
  • Best serve is with mashed potatoes and sauteed red cabbage.
