  • My goose is not cooked.

    Ok folks.

    I bought a goose at the supermarket. It was on sale, ($1 per pound)
    So I said to myself... "hmm.. I have never had goose before... WHY NOT?)

    It was frozen and packaged.

    Now the problem... I've never cooked one before. Heck, I've never even tasted one before.

    So being a well cultured group (many of you, NOT me)
    I have know doubt that some of you gals/guys have cooked one before.

    So now I need some tips... I'd prefer to cook it in the WFO.

    Please help redneck Dave out!

    Thanks everyone,

    Dave

    Here's a bit of google gandering:

    Recipe: An Absolutely Perfect Roast Goose!

    As a side note, goose grease is considered the best shortening for pie crust. It's worth the time to render it out of your pan drippings (which will be a lot: it's a fatty bird).

          Re: My goose is not cooked.

          Goose is VERY greasy, my suggestion is put it on a roasting rack so the bird is not sitting in the grease. Poke the skin with a fork so the grease drips out. The WFO is a perfect place to cook a goos,e this first time I cooked one in my gas oven we had a grease fiire!!!

          Take photos...;enjoy

              I remember my Grandmother cooking a wild goose Grandpa shot. She soaked it in milk for 3 or 4 hours to remove the gamey taste. Then roasted it on a rack in a pan. I remember that it tasted pretty good. Let us know how it comes out.

                  Re: My goose is not cooked.

                  My grandmother cooked them too - domestic though - and while it's been many years, I still remember how delicious they are. I've been shot down every Christmas when I suggest one, but some year ...

                  Anyway, pricking it all over with a fork is just what my grandmother did and if I remember right, she would drain off the fat periodically too, to reduce splattering, I think.

                  I can't wait to hear how it turns out!

                          Dave,

                          Haven't cooked goose that often, but I've done both wild and domestic. Nothing to add on the advice about cooking the domestic variety, but the wild ones will not have nearly as much, if any, fat; very lean, dark meat. On the domestic front, horde that fat. Potatoes fried in goose fat are one of life's greater pleasures. Well, maybe not more than ....

                            Hi Yes I agree Chips (potatoes) cooked in goose fat are one of life's pleasures, When I bake a whole goose I use a little thyme & lemon rind and butter with sea salt & Black pepper pushed up under the breast skin and place a whole lemon inside the belly bake slowly in low wood oven 150c for 1/2 hour per pound, about one hour before the bird is cooked drain the fat into a baking tray for your half cook boil potatoes and roast them, ones cooked I take the goose out and rest for 5 to 10 minutes and make a honey and lemon glaze, 1tbl spoon honey 1/2 cup lemon juice plus 1 teaspoon lemon rind fresh combine over high heat stir until thick glaze is made , , Place the golden baked goose on to a severing tray and pour the glaze over the whole birds and severe bake potatoes in goose fat, fresh garden peas and crab-apple jelly of gooseberry jelly. Goose meat need and nice tart flavoured with it.

                            and if any goose meat is left over after dinner make a Goose, Potatoe & cream pie the next day.

                            Hope this helps.
