Stuffing For Goose
|Butter||1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)|
|Finely chopped onions||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Apples||3 Cup (48 tbs), cored and chopped|
|Raisins||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Seedless Are Best)|
|Finely chopped parsley||2 Tablespoon|
|Ground pepper||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Ground cinnamon||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
|Crushed dried sage||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Crushed dried thyme||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Crushed dried basil||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Soft stale bread crumbs||5 Cup (80 tbs)|
|Brown sugar||3 Tablespoon|
Melt the butter in a large frying pan.
Saute the onions over low heat about 5 minutes or until barely transparent.
Add the apples, raisins, and seasonings.
Continue cooking over moderate heat 5 minutes.
Pour this savoury mixture over the bread crumbs and brown sugar.
Divide the stuffing roughly, 1/3 for the neck cavity and for the body.
Pack in lightly and skewer shut.
This is plenty of stuffing for a 7 to 8-lb goose.
For a larger goose, increase the bread to 7 cups, the butter to 1/2 cup, the onions to 1 cup, and the salt to 1 1/2 tsp.
