Project Description



  • 2 Kanzi® apples, peeled and chopped

  • 1 Kanzi® apple finely diced

  • ½ red cabbage, finely shredded

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • ¼ tsp Chinese 5 spice

  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 4 duck breasts

  • 1 tsp of Chinese 5 spice


  1. For the cabbage, add the oil to a hot pan that has a lid. Add the cabbage and cook for 5 minutes before stirring in the sugar and vinegar. Add the cinnamon stick and apples, stir and cover and cook on a low heat for 2 hours stirring occasionally. Once cooked, season with pepper.
  2. Score the fat of the duck breasts – this will help remove the fat when cooked, then dust the skin and flesh with the 5 spice.
  3. Pre heat the oven to 200 °C. Place the breasts, skin side down in a cold frying pan then turn on the heat. Slowly cook the duck over a medium heat, removing the excess fat in the pan as you go. Cook for 6-8 minutes until crispy then pop into the oven for 6 minutes. Remove from the oven then turn so the skin is facing upwards and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Whilst the duck is resting, dust the bottom of a small frying pan with the sugar. Allow to caramelize. Dust your diced apples in 5 spice then carefully add them, along with the vinegar to your pan. Stir.
  5. Slice the duck breast into 5 slices, place on top of a bed of red cabbage and spoon round your sweet and sour apples. Serve with warmed new potatoes.
