    Looks good !! But, "1 container of organic beef stock, 1 container of organic vegetable stock" will end in a disaster !! Describe a container ?? A small can, a carton, a bucket ?? What say you ?? Not to mention this is a shameless plug for your site !! Shame on you !!

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    For an easier recipe, prepare wild rice as you normally would and stuff the duck with the wild rice.
