    BRAISED DUCK WITH BACON, PRUNES and KALE

    Ingredients

    4 duck legs

    6 pitted prunes

    zest of ½ an orange

    8 golden shallots, peeled

    ½ cup dry sherry

    1 cup chicken stock or water

    2 thick slices of smoked bacon, cut in half (check gluten-free, if required)

    1 bay leaf

    ½ bunch of kale

    1 tsp butter

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

    2. Over a moderate heat, warm a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a non-stick pan. Add the duck legs and gently cook, skin side down, until golden. Transfer the duck legs to a crock pot or small deep braising pan. (It is best if the duck legs fit snugly.)

    3. Add the prunes, orange zest, shallots, sherry, stock, bacon and bay leaf. Cover the pot with a lid, place it in the oven and cook for half an hour before turning the heat down to 140C.

    4. Continue to cook for two hours, checking from time to time to make sure all of the liquid doesn't evaporate. If it begins to dry out, top up with half a glass of water. When the duck is fork-tender and almost falling off the bone, remove the pot from the oven and leave to cool.

    5. Remove the duck legs from the pan and transfer the braising liquid and contents to a small saucepan. Simmer the ingredients until reduced to a thick sauce.

    6. Wipe out the braising pan, add the duck legs and return to the oven to warm through briefly. While the duck is warming, blanch the kale in a large pot of salted water for three minutes. Strain the kale well and toss with a little butter and a pinch of salt. Place one duck leg in each of four plates, spoon the reduced sauce evenly over the duck legs and add some dressed kale on the side.

  • Ahead of Ep 98 of the Don't Shoot the Messenger podcast Caroline Wilson, Corrie Perkin and Jane Nield discussed Caro's comments on Essendon's coaching intentions that she revealed on Footy Classified last night.

  • Join Caroline Wilson and Corrie Perkin for Ep 96 -'Many Years of Joy'.

    We check in with Caro and Corrie's August challenge and discuss the recent cold snap in Victoria that's seen snow falling around our region.

    MAX's CHARRED CABBAGE AND MISO BUTTER

    Prepare large pot of boiling water. Add a few pinches of salt.

    ·         Peel away outer cabbage leaves  (these can be cooked separately if you like). The cabbage should be held tight together by the outer leaves. Cut whole cabbage into quarters (or 6ths depending on size), ensuring you cut across the line of the leaf to avoid the cabbage splitting open.

    ·         Blanch the cabbage in the boiling water for approx 5 minutes until soft. Remove the cabbage and transfer to a bowl of cold water. This will avoid the cabbage overcooking.  Allow to cool.

    ·         Remove the cabbage from the water – squeeze out excess liquid and try the outside of the cabbage. There will be water that is trapped in the inside leaves, which is OK as it will steam through later when you cook it.

    ·         Transfer to a bowl and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. I also like to use a mushroom salt by blending dried shiitakes with salt; it adds great depth. Allow to sit in the oil for 15 minutes, ensuring it penetrates the leaves.

    ·         Heat griddle pan or BBQ grill to a medium/high heat.

    ·         To prepare the miso butter, add 2 Tbl miso with 1 Tbl hot water to a small bowl. Mix the miso and water until a smooth paste forms. Add 1 Tbl oil or butter to the miso. If adding butter, mix the butter in whilst warm so the miso remains runny.

    ·         Cook the cabbage on the grill for about 3-5 minutes each side. The grill should be hot and allow the cabbage to blacken and crisp on the outside. Brush the cabbage with the miso butter whilst cooking, forming a thin layer on the outer leaves. Turn the cabbage when done and cook the remaining sides, continuing to brush the cabbage with miso. Remove the cabbage when it is evenly charred and crispy on each side.

    ·         The cabbage can be served with some Japanese chilli powder or nori, or as is.

    Caro’s GLT is the super affordable range of jeans at Kmart.

    Spiced Apple Cake (from Yotam Ottolenghi's Simple) 

    130g unsalted butter150g caster sugar3 large eggs, beaten lightly2 teaspoons vanilla extract300g plain flour2 teaspoons baking powderpinch of salt200g soured cream

    Apple Topping

    4 medium-large eating apples (e.g. Cox, Braeburn, Gala), weighing about 600g70g demerara sugar1 rounded teaspoon mixed spice

    Preheat the oven to 180C/Fan 160/Gas 4. Grease and line a 23cm cake tin.

    Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla a little at a time (plus a little of the flour if it looks as if it’s curdling). Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. Fold the flour mixture in a bit at time, alternating with spoonfuls of the soured cream. Spoon the batter into the prepared cake tin.

       Peel, core and slice the apples into wedges (about 1.5cm thick). Put in a bowl. Mix the demerara sugar with the mixed spice and add to the apple. Toss gently to coat the pieces of apple.

    Gently lay the apple on top of the batter in the tin. It looked like far too much but I went with the recipe and, of course, it was absolutely perfect!

    Bake for about an hour - but may need longer.
