Crispy Duck Stuffed with Green Apples

There is a general misunderstanding about fattiness of duck. When it makes sense in terms of the AMOUNT of fat, it is not true in terms of the QUALITY of that fat. Duck’s fat (along with a goose fat and olive oil) belongs to a fat category called monounsaturated fats. It is different from saturated fats, which can hurt your health indeed. Consumed with low glycemic side dishes (good carbs,) duck can be considered as a very healthy meal.
