 to large bowl as they brown. Discard all but 1 tablespoon fat from Dutch oven.
 
 3. In fat in Dutch oven, cook onion halves until golden brown. Remove onions
 to bowl with duckling.

 anise, and 3/4 cup water. Over high heat, heat to boiling, stirring to loosen
 any brown bits from bottom of Dutch oven.
 
 5. Return duckling pieces and onions to Dutch oven. Cover Dutch oven and bake

 sprouts. Cut Brussels sprouts in half if they are large. Stir Brussels sprouts

 until duckling and vegetables are tender, basting duckling and vegetables with
 liquid in Dutch oven several times during baking.
