Roasting a Goose

First and foremost, not in my dreams did I expect to cook something like this. I admit, I do eat different food but few years ago, I was just the "eater". With a twist and change of my life, I became a "chef" in my own way.

Back to the goose. We found a frozen young goose in the grocery store and hubby wanted to try it so we bought it. We thawed the goose in our refrigerator for few days. It was a 16lbs so it took a while.

I decided to cook it yesterday. The preparation was messy! Messy in the sense that I didn't know that goose has a lot of fats. I have to remove excess fats, I think I have removed over a pound of fats.

Roasting a goose is like roasting a turkey. It is as simple as cleaning it with water, pat it dry and season with butter, salt and pepper. I roast it for 20 minutes per pound. While roasting I baste it with butter.

It was a huge success, the meat is very tender and moist while the outside is crispy.

Because this is the first time that I roasted a goose, I have found out that goose get skinny when they are cooked because the fats are all gone. The meat are darker. Even the breast area is not white.

It looks great, Lulu! And nice call, taking away all that fat. I've never tasted goose, though I have eaten turkey. Chicken pa rin ako. It's more flavorful, I think. The more maliit, tthe more malinamnam, in my opinion :)

The fats will keep it moist because it will shrink once it is cooked. Although I have not had goose yet but my husband had some before. I wild goose that is. I only had wild duck before. :) This turned out good. :) I bet it was really good. Visiting you mommy Lulu via TBE!
