No need to preheat oven
Remove duck from the packaging and remove the giblets and trim off any excess fat then rinse under cold, running water
Pat the duck dry inside and out with kitchen paper towel
Using a sharp knife score the skin of the duck as well as prick a few holes then rub with honey
Place the duck into the cook-in-bag breast side up and season with the dry KNORR mixture. Close bag at the end with the blue tie supplied.
Very gently massage the KNORR mixture into the duck on a stable surface. Ensure dry mixture is evenly spread.
Place bag sideways in a cool oven dish and bake at 180 C for 80 minutes (20 minutes per 500 g duck plus 20 minutes extra) on the lowest shelf in the oven. Ensure that the grill is off at all times
Keep enough room for the bag to expand – bag must not touch the sides of the oven
When done allow the duck to rest for a few minutes then carefully cut open the bag and transfer to a serving dish
Use the juices from the bag to roast your potatoes and vegetables
