American.Gourmet's picture
Ingredients
  Young wild goose 8 Pound (1 Bird)
  Lemon 1 , juiced
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped onion 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped tart apple 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped dried apricots 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Fine soft bread crumbs 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Bacon slices 6
  Melted bacon fat 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
Directions

1. Preheat oven to moderate (325° F.).
2. Sprinkle the goose inside and out with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
3. In a large saucepan, heat the butter, add the onion and cook until tender. Stir in the apple, apricots, bread crumbs, one-half teaspoon salt and one-eighth teaspoon pepper.
4. Spoon the stuffing lightly into the goose cavity. Close the opening and truss with skewers and string. Cover the breast with bacon slices and cheesecloth soaked in melted bacon fat. Place the goose, breast up, on a rack in an open roasting pan.
5. Roast until tender, two to three hours, basting frequently with bacon fat and the drippings in the pan. If the age of the goose is uncertain, pour one cup water into the pan and cover for the last hour of cooking. Remove the cheesecloth, skewers and string.
