Confit Duck Leg with Caramelized Apple and Horseradish Mash

Serves 4

4 confit duck legs
2 kg floury potatoes
3-4 tablespoons horseradish (from a jar)
100-130 g butter
3 granny smith apples
10 juniper berries
2 tablespoons honey
milk, enough for a creamy mash
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Peel the potatoes and cut into 2 cm cubes. Place in a pan of salted water, bring to the boil and cook until the potatoes are soft.

Preheat the grill in the oven. Peel the apples and cut into wedges; lightly crush the juniper berries. In a frying pan over medium-high heat, melt 30g butter; add the apples, 2 tablespoons honey and the juniper berries. Cook the apples until lightly caramelized and just tender.

Place the confit duck legs in a roasting dish under the grill until golden and warmed through, about 10-12 minutes. Drain the potatoes, return to the pan and mash until smooth. Add 70-100 g butter, the horseradish and enough milk to make a smooth, silky mash. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.

Spoon the mash on to serving plates. Lay the duck on top, spoon the apples and their juices around and serve.
