Preparation steps

1.

Core the apples, cut into 1.5cm (about 1-inch) thick slices and sprinkle with the lemon juice. Make cross hatch cuts into the skin of the duck breasts, then place on a large plate, sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 10 minutes. Place the duck  skin-side down in a large pan over medium heat and saute 7-10 minutes, then season with a little salt and pepper and saute 4-5 minutes. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Pour the hard cider and apple juice into the hot pan scraping up any browned bits and simmer 5-10 minutes until syrupy, stirring frequently. Add the green pepper and the orange juice and season with salt.

2.

Melt 1-2 tablespoons butter in a second pan and gently saute the apple slices over low heat, turning 1-2 times. Sprinkle with 1-2 teaspoons powdered sugar and cook until slightly caramelized on both sides. Slice the duck breasts and serve with the caramelised apple slices on warmed plates. Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of sauce over each and serve immediately.
