Fresh blackberries or cherries when they are in season are a great accompaniment for duck. But out of season, my easy berry sauce recipe using berries from the freezer makes a great substitute.
It’s quick and easy, just some frozen berries, freshly squeezed orange juice and brown sugar. Takes about the same time as cooking duck breasts or you can make it in advance.
Just as an aside, I had some leftover easy berry sauce from dinner and tried it with ice cream. It was really good!
