Roast duck with cherries is not a traditional Christmas dinner, in fact you can eat it anytime of year. However for those who prefer to steer away from turkey, then this might just be the dish for you. Infused with aromatic spices, this roast simply smells of Christmas and with such moist, tasty and tender meat, why wouldn’t you opt for duck? This is not a quick and easy meal but it is reasonably simple to make if you have a little extra time on your hands. If cherries aren’t in season, buy frozen or in jars.
