accidentally bought a goose instead of a duck.I've never even eaten a goose before.What am I in for?
>>17038774Red meat and goose fat. Delish.
>>17038774>What am I in forDeliciousness.
>>17038774a wild goose chase
>>17038774Like duck but you get more fat out of it.
>>17038774It's very different. Much more like eating roast beef than any other bird you've ever eaten to the point if you didn't tell people it was goose they'd definitely think it was some kind of beef or venison.But it's good. Follow some online recipes and have a goose feast. Save the fat for frying things in. Yukon Gold potatoes fried in goose fat are decadent.
>>17038774Goose is way better than turkey.
>>17038834It's not very much like duck.Chicken----Turkey----Duck-----------------------------------Goose-------------Roast Beef
>>17038855This anon knows how to goose. Fry them taters. Orgasmic.
>>17038774Goose is good, but I've never prepared one.
>>17038855that is a plot twist.any good beginners recipes for idiots?
>>17038774only ever eaten one brow good luck on the cooking of it.maybe dry rub it tonight
>>17039033it's still thawing. but my spice cabinet is ready.
I do a goose dinner every year. It's great.
>>17038774You get more of a "HONK" than a "QUACK" flavor.
>>17038987cook the goose
>>17039403this is technically correct
>>17039403Heh nice, have a slice of cheese
>>17038774Well, Geese are evil. So think of it as justice against all Geese. The Honkacaust.
>>17038774NOOO NOT THE FREAKIN GOOSE
>>17038774I like it better than duck. It isn't as gamey and seems to be more fatty too.
>>17039548Don't talk to my full St Nectaire like this.Ate it all desu
I'm gonna get assblasted for this, but....Use the Adam Ragusea goose (ragoosea, kek) recipe. I made goose for christmas last year and it was really really fucking good. The goose fat ends up infused with holiday spice flavor, which makes everything you put it in taste fucking amazing. It sounds insane but you haven't lived until you've had frijoles made with clove and nutmeg spiced goose fat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aonZ5whtMRg
>>17038774you're in for the best poultry meat by far. very distinctive too
>>17039613I was actually thinking about following this recipe. It's pretty similar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=482gdh7L4-Y
>>17038774>What am I in for?the best ever roast potatoes
>>17038774I prefer it over duck. In my country we celebrate St. Martin's Day with goose, and it's basically my favorite meal of the year that I always look forward to weeks in advance.
>>17038774You silly goose
Hungarians make crispy fried skin from goose. Almost indistinguishable from crispy fried pork skin.
I'm so jealous; I've never lived in an area where it's possible to buy goose for <$100, let alone an area where you can haphazardly pick it up at a normal grocery store. Goose is amazing.Some options:>confit the legs and serve with red cabbage and potatoes>pan fry the breasts medium-rare>slow roast as you would a duckYou MUST save the fat; as others have mentioned, it's incredible for roasting potatoes (and other vegetables). If it comes with liver then make a mousse and pair with good bread, berry jam, and pickled or fermented red onions.
>>17038987Roast the goose, make a gravy but skim off the fat, serve with dumplings and red cabbage.
>>17041532>confit the legs and serve with red cabbage and potatoesEven better if you fry the cabbage and potatoes in the goose fat.
>>17039613I’ve never had goose before, but I love turkey necks. Imagine how good goose necks are.
>>17041579>>17041532definitely gonna save the fat and make gravy.
I cooked goose once. I put it directly on the top oven shelf with a large roasting pan underneath to catch the rendered fat. There was a lot of fat. The wings are disgusting and look like some prehistoric beast arms. From memory (it was about 8-9 years ago now) I cut the legs so they released from the body to aid with cooking them fully without overcooking the breast. After an initial high temperature period of time I reduced the heat and brushed it every 10 minutes with a mixture of orange juice, honey, five spice and mango puree. It was extremely delicious. It ruined the oven because grease went everywhere. The place was a rental, but holy shit was cleaning the oven when we moved out difficult, it was like underneath the oven was flooded with semi solidified fat. It was a gas oven and it had a burner bar underneath the oven in the top of a warming cupboard/cavity and the oven was a metal box with square vent holes all around the sides of the floor I guess the grease ran down the oven and exited through those holes. Despite how retro and bullshit it sounds it was actually a good oven. It took forever to cook and come to temperature, but it was a moist heat and capable of getting extremely hot if left on. It was difficult to light though. I would cook goose again. I'd cook duck again too. A large goose (typically they aren't as large as turkey) is quite expensive. I paid like $39 for one.
They tend to be oily but I like them a lot.
>>17038774Greasier, but better flavor. What you *really^ want is actual game bird, but this is superior to standard issue turkey.
>>17041532>I've never lived in an area where it's possible to buy goose for <$100Mind if I ask where that is? Like which country?
i have now a desire to roast a goose
OP here:Thanks for the help.It turned out okay, really did taste like roast beef and the gravy was excellent. But I think I'm gonna stick to duck, simply because I'm better at it.
>>17043753its not badyoull like it more if you hunt your own.
>>17039522Geese are cute :(
>>17038774Well how was it?
>>17044399It was okay, but the gravy was top notch. Roast beef is an accurate description.But I'll be sticking to duck. Quacks taste better than honks.
>>17038855Even better if you can get goose fat in a store
A Honkin' good time
>>17038774Be sure to report your findings I was thinking of getting one for christmas
>>17039613>Adam RaguseaNever heard of him but why would you get assblasted for sharing his vids? Just watching and he seems like a reasonable and non-annoying youtube cook.
