Parboil as above directed; throw away the carrot or onion, lay in fresh water half an hour; stuff with breadcrumbs seasoned with pepper, salt, sage, and onion, and roast until brown and tender, basting for half the time with butter and water, then with the drippings. Add to the gravy, when you have taken up the ducks, a teaspoonful of currant jelly, and a pinch of cayenne. Thicken with browned flour and serve in a tureen.
