Trim excess fat from duck breasts, reserving fat for sauteing vegetables. Heat a 12-inch heavy skillet over high heat until very hot. Pat breasts dry and season with salt. Put breasts, skin sides down, in skillet and reduce heat to moderate. Cook breasts 20 minutes, or until skin is crisp and mahogany-colored, removing fat from skillet as it is rendered with a metal bulb baster (or very carefully pouring it off). Turn breasts and cook about 2 minutes for medium-rare or to desired doneness. Transfer breasts to a plate and keep warm, covered loosely. While duck br easts are cooking, peel pear and cut into 1/4-inch dice. Pour off all but about 1 tablespoon fat from skillet and saute pear until lightly browned, about 1 minute. In a measuring cup stir together ap ple juice and cornstarch. To pear add Calvados or Armagnac. Stir in cornstarch mixture, peppercorns, demiglace or bouillon cube, and thyme and simmer, stirring, 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened Recipe By : COOKING LIVE SHOW #CL8761 Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #306 Date: Sun, 17 Nov 1996 13:51:08 -0500 From: "Angele and Jon Freeman"
