What can I do with duck bones?

Hi everyone!
I bought a roast duck in Chinatown today and I don't want to waste the bones. If they were chicken bones, I would just make soup stock, but with the duck bones I would prefer to make something that will make the most of that great duck flavor. Can anyone suggest a soup or other recipe that would be good with duck bones?
Thanks in advance!

  1. use them to make duck rice porridge. it takes on the smokiness of the duck. season with soy sauce and pepper, add some chopped scallions before serving.
    i do the same with the turkey bones every thanksgiving.

      That is a great idea. Would I put the bones in with the boiling water and rice, and then take them out when the rice is cooked? Or make stock with the bones and then cook the rice in that?

        i just throw everything in a large pot and on low heat for about 2-3 hrs

    2. Make duck soup. It's easy. :-)

          Thanks, that soup sounds delicious!

      1. I add them to my bag of chicken scraps for stock.
