Remove the duck and fry the mushrooms and onions.
Drain off any fat left in the cooker and return the duck joints.
Thinly peel the orange with a potato peeler and finely slice the rind into small thin strips; put these in a small pan with a little water and simmer for about 5 minutes, until tender, then drain and leave to use later.
