Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

5 lb Long Island duck, cleaned Boiling water
1 tb Chinese five-spice powder Sweet and sour plum sauce
1 ts Salt Oil for deep frying
1 c Water chestnut powder Crushed toasted almonds

Place duck in large kettle or Dutch oven with enough boiling
water to cover. Add spices and salt and simmer covered until tender,
about 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Remove duck from liquid and let cool.
Remove meat from bones and discard skin. Pour chestnut powder
into small baking pan (an 8-inch aluminum pan works well; powder
should be 1/2 to 1/4 inch deep). Press meat into powder. Cover and
steam 30 minutes, or until powder has gelatinized into thick, heavy
crust. Remove from steamer and let cool.
Cover and chill until ready to complete. About 30 minutes
before serving time, prepare sweet and sour plum sauce; set aside and
keep warm. Warm a serving platter in low oven. Preheat oil in deep
fryer to 375 F. Slice duck into bite-size chunks and fry quickly in
batches until crisp and browned. Remove with slotted spoon and drain
on paper towels. Repeat until cooking is completed. Serve immediately
with sweet and sour plum sauce topped with nuts. From Bon Appetit's
"Oriental Favorites."
