1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a skillet or sauté pan. Add duck breast meat trim and sauté for 2 minutes, then flip over and sauté other side for another 2-3 minutes. Duck should still be slightly pink inside. Set aside.


2. Heat remaining oil in a soup pot. Add the ground duck sausage and cook for about 1 minute. Add the shallots and continue sautéing for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, celery, sweet potatoes, apples and chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are barely tender.


3. Add the cranberries, cream, milk and flour to the soup and stir until it reaches a smooth consistency. Cook until the soup begins to thicken. Add the cooked duck meat and chives. Season to taste.


**Use convenient Duck Breast Meat Trim that comes in boneless, skinless pieces, or use Duck Breast and remove the skin yourself.
