Peel garlic cloves and squeeze them. Add honey, black ground pepper, coriander, rosemary, salt, and vegetable oil. Mix everything carefully.

Grease the duck with the prepared sauce carefully (inside and out). Set the duck aside for 30-60 minutes. Rinse apples, remove the cores and slice the apples. Stuff the duck with the apples. Secure the duck with the toothpicks.

Transfer the duck to a baking sheet. Arrange some apples around the duck. Add some water. Start to bake the duck. In 20-30 minutes pour the dark with the emerged juice and continue to bake it. Pour the duck from time to time,

Serve the duck as soon as you bake it.
