Here’s a lovely recipe that is easy to make when you entertaining in your home. You simply put all the ingredients in one pot, put it in the oven, and you’re done! While it cooks, the duck’s fat goes to the barley and it’s all the more delicious.

It’s a different way to eat duck legs, as we are all familiar with duck confit, but not with this recipe.
