  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spread the rosemary sprigs and garlic cloves into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Place the duck legs on top of the rosemary, and sprinkle with salt and five-spice powder. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Meanwhile, bring the wine to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the currant jelly until dissolved. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes; set aside.
  3. After the duck has cooked 1 hour, pour off and discard the fat that has accumulated in the baking dish. Pour the wine sauce over the duck legs, and bake 15 minutes more until the duck is very tender and the sauce has thickened slightly.

Great recipe! I skipped the five-spice powder and used an herb mix instead. The sauce is perfect!

I loved the cooking method for this duck and will do again. I had two duck legs, so I used an 8x8 pan, and only had dried rosemary. I put about a Tbsp of olive oil, with rosemary and five unpeel...

Thank you so, so much for this recipe! I don't have a ton of experience in the kitchen, I'm competent, but I'm single, so I never cooked all that much until a few months ago when I moved to a ne...

This was absolutely delicious and very easy to execute. I followed the recipe as is. I did however reduce the sauce further after the 5 min simmer as it looked a bit thin. It resulted in too ...
