Roasting the duck legs before adding them to the pot gets rid of excess fat crisps the skin and turns them a rich mahogany brown (this can be done the day before). Slow braising makes the meat melting and succulent. The root vegetables infused with spice and the sharp plums are good with the duck. Semi dried plums available at Waitrose)
