Roast Duck Stuffed with Apples and Grapes

1 Duck, 5 1/2 pound, dressed


Duck giblets
1/2 lb Mushrooms, coarsely chopped
4 Greening apples, cored and sliced, but not peeled
1 1/2 cups Seeded (or seedless) halved sweet grapes
2 cups Unblanched hazelnuts
1 teaspoons Salt

For basting:

2 cups of Apple cider

Cover the duck giblets with water in a small saucepan and simmer gently for 1/2 hour. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the giblet-cooking water. Chop the giblets for the stuffing. Mix the giblets and 1/2 cup giblet-cooking water with the stuffing ingredients. Remove any pinfeathers from the duck, and singe to remove any hairs. Stuff both neck and body cavities of the bird, skewer shut, and truss. Prick the skin of the duck well all over with a sharp fork. Wrap any remaining stuffing in aluminum foil. Place the duck, breast side up, on a rack in a large roasting pan. Place the foil-wrapped stuffing in the pan beside the bird. Place in a hot oven, 400F, and roast for 1 hour, pricking the skin of the duck with a fork and basting every 20 minutes with cider. Reduce oven temperature to moderate, 350F, and continue to roast for 2 hours more, pricking the duck and basting every 20 minutes with cider and drippings.
