    1. Make the stuffing: in a bowl, combine bread, currants, apples, dried thyme, salt, pepper and butter.
    2. Rinse the goose inside and out and dry with paper towels. Fill it with stuffing, truss it and prick all over with a sharp skewer.
    3. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof casserole and sear the goose on all sides. Add a little water, cover and cook 1 hour at 190 degrees C.
    4. In a bowl, mix the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, bay leaf, cloves, thyme and marjoram. Arrange around the goose. Continue cooking without the lid, about 20 minutes per 500g of goose. Remove the fat while cooking. Add water if necessary so it doesn't burn.
    5. Remove the goose and transfer to a large dish. Cover with foil to keep warm.
    6. Remove any fat from the casserole, then add the wine, tomato paste and stock. Simmer 15 minutes then strain out the gravy. Thicken with cornflour if necessary.

    My first goose was terrific! Couldn't find currants, so dates were used. The stuffing is yummy, as was the gravy. Very easy recipe and impressive on the table. The goose took about an hour less time than expected.  -  29 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Best Christmas Goose ever, thanks.  -  27 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fantastic! This was only the second time I have made goose, and I was thrilled with the outcome! It was moist, and flavorfu1. I didn't choose to stuff the goose with the stuffing but stuffed the goose with apples instead (had a family member who couldn't have anything with gluten) I just baked the stuffing. It was all wonderful, goose, stuffing and gravy. I will make this again!  -  25 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
