Roast Goose With Wild Rice-Chestnut Stuffing
400 mins (prep 40, cooking 360)
14 ingredients
6 servings
This is one way Christmas dinner was prepared in Dicken's day! Adapted from YANKEE MAGAZINE. Cooking time includes about 1 1/2 hours for rice to cook and cool. (I used a wild rice blend I found in bulk) Canned chestnuts can be found in specialty stores. Make sure they are NOT packed in syrup! The original recipe did not pierce skin and fat, which I did to help "drain" off excess grease. It also said to put whole goose on serving platter and garnish with pine sprigs and sliced blood oranges, but I find it messy to try to carve at the table and dig stuffing out to serve. If you are more adventuresome, serve this way :) NOTE: 'Zaar will not let me put in "1 10-12 lb. goose" so it comes up "10 lbs. geese"
