2 To 3 large cooking apples, cored and cut into wedges

Butter Sauce:

Place apple wedges in cavities of ducks. Arrange ducks in a single or double layer in an extra-large roaster or two large Dutch ovens; pour Burgundy and water over ducks. Cover and bake at 250 degrees F for 3 hours or until ducks are very tender, basting occasionally. Remove ducks from roaster, discarding apple wedges and pan drippings; let ducks chill thoroughly.

Bone ducks, and cut meat into bite-sized pieces; return to roaster. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. Drizzle Butter Sauce over meat; toss gently. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for an additional 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Transfer meat to serving platter, and garnish with orange twists and rosemary, if desired.
