method

1. Grate the zest and squeeze the juice from 2 of the oranges; slice the other orange.

2. Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan, add the onions and cook gently, stirring often for 15-20 minutes, until soft and caramelised.

3. Meanwhile, lightly score the duck fat with a sharp knife and rub a little salt into the cuts.

4. Place skin-side up in a roasting tin and tuck the orange slices in between. Roast at 200°C (400°F/gas 6) for 12-15 minutes.

5. Add the wine and orange juice to the onions; bring to the boil and let bubble for about 5 minutes until the liquid is totally reduced.

6. Add the ginger, orange zest, sugar and port, bring to the boil and bubble for 5 minutes until syrupy.

7. Add the beetroot and warm through. Season to taste.

8. Let the duck rest for 5 minutes. Then serve it with the relish and the roasted orange slices.
