1. Turn the duck necks inside out and trim away the glands or tubes. Turn back the right way round and lightly season all over.

2. Combine stuffing ingredients into a large mixing bowl and use your hands to mix everything together thoroughly. Divide the stuffing mixture into 6 portions.

3. Carefully fill the duck necks with the stuffing mixture to form a fat sausage, leaving some excess skin at either end. Lay each sausage on a square of plastic wrap and roll up tightly. Twist the ends and secure with butchers string. Now wrap each sausage again in aluminium foil – double wrapping is important, as it helps the sausage maintain a firm shape when poaching.

4. Place the sausages in a large pan of cold water. Bring to a gentle simmer and poach the sausages for 35 minutes. Lift them out carefully and place them in a bowl of iced water. When cold, remove from the water and pat dry on a tea towel. Keep the sausages in their wrapping until ready to roast. They can be pre-prepared to this stage up to 4 days ahead of time. 

5. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Arrange the sausages on a wire rack in a roasting tin, drizzle with oil and roast for 8-10 minutes, turning from time to time, until evenly coloured and cooked through. Remove from oven and rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
