“This recipe is rather time consuming the first time around due to making the duck stock. Afterwards it can be made in about 60 minutes. You can "kick it up" with bottled green pepper sauce, cornbread and green onions. The recipe for the stock, preparation of the beans and rice are included. The cooking time does take into consideration the time to cook and cool the stock.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Cover by about 2 inches with cold water and bring slowly to a boil.
  3. Skim any froth that forms on the surface.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered about 3 hours.
