  • Meanwhile, drain most of the fat from the frying pan and add the shallots, thyme, garlic and tomatoes. Cook for 3 mins, then add the wine and balsamic vinegar. Stir in the butter and bramble jelly and cook for 3 mins to reduce. Slice the rested duck breasts and drizzle with the sauce. Serve with steamed cavolo nero and enjoy.
