Holiday Roast Goose

Prep 30 mins Roast 350°F3 hrs Stand 15 mins
Holiday Roast Goose
Ingredients
  • 1 10 - 12  pound  domestic goose
  • 1  teaspoon  dried marjoram, crushed
  • 1/4 - 1/2  teaspoon  coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1  recipe Herb Glaze or Ginger-Honey Glaze
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse goose; pat dry with paper towels. Remove excess fat from cavity and neck. Sprinkle body cavity and rub the outside of the skin with marjoram and pepper.

2. Skewer neck skin to back; tie legs to tail using 100 percent cotton kitchen string. Twist wings under back. Prick entire surface of bird with a fork.

3. Place goose, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into thigh meat (bulb should not touch the bone).

4. Roast, uncovered, for 3 to 3-3/4 hours, or until the thermometer registers 180 degrees, drumsticks move easily in sockets, and juices run clear. Using a basting bulb, carefully remove and discard the hot, liquid fat as it accumulates during roasting.

5. Baste goose with about 1/3 cup of Herb Glaze or Ginger-Honey Glaze during the last 15 minutes of roasting. Add vinegar or broth to remaining glaze as directed.

6. Reheat glaze to serve as a sauce. Cover goose; let stand for 15 minutes before carving.

7. To serve, carve goose; pass remaining glaze to drizzle over sliced goose. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
