4.) Place on a warm plate and set aside to rest while you make the sauce.

5.) Pour the wine into the duck pan, stir and let it simmer for a minute.

6.) Reduce to a medium heat and add all of the other ingredients apart from the spring onions, and simmer for 8-10 minutes until the sauce is thick and the cranberries are soft.

7.) Taste and season.

8.) Warm the blinis according to the pack instructions and lay on a serving plate.

9.) Slice the duck into thin slices.

10.) Lay one slice on each blini, top with some sauce and a few slices of spring onion.
