Goose me for Thanksgiving

bdumes | Nov 14, 2006 05:16 PM

Well, it turns out that Thanksgiving this year will be a very low key event, just my lovely wife and myself. I was thinking I'd make a duck, which never fails to satisfy. But I've been looking for a good excuse to try cooking a goose. I realize that a goose is really way too much for just the two of us for dinner. So is a duck, but we LOVE the things I can do with the leftovers, especially making a soup from the carcass.

Anyway, so this will be my first experience with a duck. I'm looking for roasting suggestions as well as leftovers suggestions. I've heard that goose fat is just wonderful for roasting anything, so I'm planning on saving that. Are there "stuff/no stuff" factions with geese like with turkeys?

I'm really intrigued by some recipes I've seen online calling for a port. Any excuse to throw alcohol into my food is always fun. :-)

Thanks in advance.
