If you're not familiar with Tracklements in Kerrytown and enjoy smoked foods, you're in for a treat. It is marvelous that we have access to such irresistibly delicious products that Trackleman's is known for all over the country.
My daughter, Greta, is a woodworker and furniture maker in Chicago and made this little apple cutting board for Richard. It's getting a great workout at this time of the year.
Yield: 8-10 appetizer servings
Time: 15 minutes
1 pound smoked duck, thinly sliced (Durham's sliced it for me)
3 assorted varieties of Michigan-grown apples, sliced
1/3 cup wine-infused jelly*
*I purchased merlot jelly last year at Whole Foods on Stadium.
Arrange sliced duck, apples and jelly on a cutting board or platter. Smear a bit of jelly over the apple, top with a slice of smoke duck and enjoy.
