„Drumsticks” (leg of chicken) with a spicy apple

4 tbsp oil
5 dkg butter
8 shallot
8 apples
1 tbsp castor sugar
1 tbsp pear pálinka
1 csp of ground coriander
5 dkg almond chips
ground pepper


Smear the legs with oil, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, roast it crispy in a warm oven, then grill it 2 minutes long. Meanwhile steam the onions soft in butter (it is fine, if it will be slightly brown.) Add the peeled, seeded apples whole to the onions. Sprinkle them with sugar, and hatch it on a big flame, int he meantime turn them round in an alley occasionally. Fry it to slightly caramel, then sprinkle it with the pálinka, flavour it with salt, pepper, coriander, and steam it 10 minutes long. When it is ready, put i tan fire-proof pan, sprinkle it with almond chips and grill it 1-2 minutes long, while the almond reddens to golden. We serve it hot, beside the chicken legs.

Duck confit

2 pcs of duck thigh,
2 big fistfuls salt,
6 big cloves of garlic,
few fresh thyme branches,
1 little glass rape pálinka,
1 dl water.

The start is plain and lasts only a few minutes. The half of the salt sprinkle into a big plastic box, then put in it with skinned side down the washed, dry duck legs. Sprinkle the rest of salt on them, and foiled put them into the refrigerator for 1 day. The salt works on the muscles of the duck legs, and this „preparative treatment” plays an important role on it, that they will be unbelievably crispy at the end.


The tasks on next day are also not complicated. Sweep the salt off carefully from the legs, (because as much is needed, permeated them richly already), and skinned side down rearrange all of them into a pan of that size, in which they find enough place beside each other easily. Flavouring throw the cleaned, whole garlic cloves and the fresh thyme branches beside them, then mix pálinka with water, and pour it on the duck legs.


We reached the essence: steaming of the leg slow, wobbled, fragrant. This means a lot in time, on the other hand in work nothing, because we can see: the meat boils perfect alone on the cooker. Cover the saucepan, and on slow boil the food. As it starts bubbling, put the cooker on low level immediately, and leave it that the duck legs soften in their own fat in 2 2 and 1/4 hours long. It is not allowed to hurry it; indeed, it is necessary to do everything for it, let them be ready more slowly (let them stay longer in their fat). This is the only really good solution, that they won’t be dry.


In the last 15 minutes warm the oven onto 220 C (on a gas oven 6 grade), because we fry the soft legs to crispy. After the 2 hours, wait for the duck legs getting cold in the pan. Then take them out, and skinned side up put them beside each other into a big frying pan. (Do not pour out the garlic-thyme duck fat: it will be perfect for the world's best french fries, and with onion on fresh soft bread is a luxurious delight!)
Now put the duck legs into the warm oven, and fry them side by side under 15-15 minutes crispy.
