Shanghai Duck

8 large scallions, cut into 2-inch lengths
2 medium star anise, broken into 16 sections
2 slices gingerroot, half-dollar size
5 lbs duck
1 cup light soy sauce
1 cup dark soy sauce
1 cup water
34 cup sugar
12 cup honey, just enough to cover skin


Put the scallions, star anise and ginger root in a heavy pot, on the top of your stove. Place the duck, breast side up in the pot. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the duck. Cover and bring just to a boil. Simmer for about two hours or until tender, turning every half-hour. Pre-Heat Oven to 400 degrees F. Remove duck from pan and place on a shallow baking dish. rub honey on duck. place duck in oven just until crispy -- this does not take long and should not be left alone. Once crisp, remove and serve! Reserve liquid and serve at the table as a sauce.
