Score skin of Duck into small cross hatch marks being sure not to go through to the meat.  Rub with spices and salt.  Sear in very hot pan (cast iron is best) skin side down until the skin is crisp.  Turn over breast for 1 minute and then let breast stand for a while and cool down.


In a food processor, rough chop cherries adding sugar, cinnamon and wine.  Reduce in small sauce pan until thickened. 


Roast the Duck for 10-12 minutes until medium rare and serve with marmalade.  Can be served hot or cold.
