Cherry Duckling

  Duckling 4
  Salt To Taste
  Black cherry conserve/Jam 6 Ounce (175 Gram)
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Red wine 1⁄4 Pint (150 Milliliter)
  Salted potato crisp 2 1⁄2 Ounce (70 Gram)

1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
2. Pat the duckling portions dry with absorbent paper. Prick the skin with a fork and sprinkle with salt.
3. Place the duckling, skin side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting tin. Roast in the oven for about 1 1/4 hours or until tender and cooked through (the juices run clear when the flesh is pierced with a skewer).
4. During the last 15 minutes cooking, spread the potato crisps for the garnish on a baking sheet. Heat through in the oven with the duckling.
5. Meanwhile, make the sauce: place the cherry conserve in a heavy saucepan. Stir in the cinnamon and red wine, then bring to the boil, stirring. Lower the heat and simmer gently for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
6. Arrange the duckling on a warmed serving dish and garnish with the hot potato crisps and watercress, if liked. Serve at once, with the cherry sauce poured over or handed separately.
