It is possible to cook this in a black pot, needs to go very, very slowly ...
1 Kg duck, quartered
4 Tablespoons plain flour
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 Large onion, finely chopped
60 g sliced mushrooms
4 Tablespoons Brandy
4 Tablespoons Green Ginger Wine (or fortified wine)
Salt & pepper

Dry duck quarters and rub with 2 tablespoons of flour. Heat butter and oil in a frying pan... brown duck on all sides, remove and place in slow cooker.
Add onion and mushrooms to the frying pan ... sauté until golden brown. Add half the brandy and half the fortified wine ... simmer for 2 minutes. Add remaining flour and cook until well browned.
Slowly add a cup of water, stirring regularly. Season and add mixed herbs ... spoon sauce over the duck in the slow cooker. Cook for 5 hours on low.
After 3 hours, add the carrots and sweet potato ... add a pinch more of mixed herbs. Half and hour before serving, stir remaining fortified wine and brandy into the sauce.
I added a bit of fresh cucumber and tomato to keep the rabbit happy ...
