    serves 6-8
    1 duck weighing 1.75 kg (4 lbs)
    1 garlic clove
    2 cups (500 ml) (16 fl oz) water
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup (8 fl oz) 250 ml dry sherry
    1 onion
    125 ml (4 fl oz) 1/2 cup oil
    1 cup (150 g) 5 oz blanched almonds
    Pinch freshly ground black pepper
    Pinch sugar
    4 tbsp soy sauce

    1. Wash and dry duck and giblets. Peel and quarter garlic. Cut neck and wings off duck, place them in pan with water, salt, sherry, garlic and giblets and bring to the boil.

    2. Cut duck into quarters, put into boiling stock and simmer gently for 1 hour on a low heat.

    3. Strain stock, skim off fat, then reduce over high heat to 350 ml (12 fl oz) 1 1/2 cups.

    4. Peel onion and slice into thin rings.
