Step 1

Soak goose in salt water for 1-2 hours. Sprinkle seasoning salt & pepper inside and outside of goose cavity. Stuff cavity with celery, onion & parsley. Crush 4 cloves of garlic and spread it on the breast. Dust heavily with sage. Pour wine into the cavity.

Step 2

Add 1/2 an inch of water to roast in pan. Cook at 400 F for 1 hour, then at 325 F for 5 hours. Cook covered.


This is easy to make. It does take a lot of time because it has to be cooked slowly for several hours in order for it to be tender. This should fall off the bones.
