Of course, whenever you cook, you need to wash your hands often. Wash your hands especially after you handle raw meat.
We started preparing the duck yesterday.
I mixed vinegar and brown sugar to make a syrup to use on the duck.
I put a little red wine vinegar in boiling water.
And then poured the boiling water over the duck to help the skin absorb the syrup.
Then I put on the syrup on the duck and left it in the fridge overnight to dry out the skin.
I put the salt and Chinese five spice on the skin.
Then I put char siu sauce on the duck.
And put it in the oven for 2 1/2 hours at 375F.
I think it came out good.
What do you think?
Next I worked on the corn bread.
I mixed all of the dry ingredients first.
And then I mixed the eggs and buttermilk together.
Then we mixed the wet and dry ingredients and added in some melted butter.
I melted even more butter in the cast iron skillet in the oven.
Then I poured the batter into the hot skillet.
Smoothed it out
And then put it in the oven.
Dad cut up the potatoes for me and I layered them in the baking dish with brown sugar and cinnamon.
And then I poured melted butter over the potatoes.
I baked them for an hour and then put marshmallows on them and baked it for another 5 minutes.
We also had venison.
I seared the venison to get a crust on it and I finished it in the oven.
Then I deglazed the pan with some red wine and added some butter and (gluten-free) flour to thicken it up to make a sauce.
Dad cooked the asparagus and did some chopping and of course he took a lot of pictures.
& Mom took this picture of me and Dad.
Here is a link to the recipe that we used for the Cornbread.
