Free range goose
Our free range geese are from Edward Wilkinson in York, these are free range grass fed birds, free to roam and forage, this in turn imparts a happy and flavorsome goose.
All you have to do is choose your size of your free range goose, while they may seem quite large the meat yield from a goose or duck is quite small compared to their size so a medium bird will feed 4 people plus, a large one will feed maybe 6 people plus
Free range goose cooking instructions:
Prick the skin all over, underneath the wings, pre heat your oven to 200 degrees or gas 5 and cook for the first 30 minutes then reduce to 180 degrees or gas 4 and for a 4-5kg bird it will take approx 3 hours, for a 5 -6kg bird it will take approx 3.5 hours. allways prick the deepest part of the bird and make sure the juices are flowing clear. this is only a guide no guarantees should be assumed or are implied.
