I'm thinking of roasting a goose (actually, 2 geese) this year instead of turkey for Thanksgiving. I've done some research online and on my cookbook shelf but am not finding any recipes that are really calling to me - they either seem waaaay too involved (eg, parboil then air dry the goose updide down for 24 hours) or uninspired, flavor-wise). I've never made goose before so I could use some guidance - either with some recommendations for foolproof recipes or general goose-prep techniques or maybe even someone to tell me it isn't worth the hassle.
My local butcher says they need to order the geese by Monday, so I need to decide soon whether to go on this "wild goose chase" or stick with the noble turkey this year.
How reuniting with estranged family, under tragic circumstances, helped me let go of an aimless, lifelong pursuit.
