Our friend went to NC to hunt goose. we asked him to bring us one back. I made it for Valentine's and it was a hit. So tender and flavorful. You will see why when you read the ingredients. It tastes like roast beef to all of us.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rinse goose very well under cold water. This was a wild goose so I washed it extra well. Put all brine ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Place goose in the brine for 5 hrs. When goose is ready to prepare cut up apple and onion and place in the cavity. Drape bacon strips all across the goose. Place goose in a roasting pan that has a rack. Some geese are fatter than others, so you should use a deep roaster. Bake at 350F for 2 hrs and then turn oven down to 325F for last hour. Remove from oven and let rest. Carve and drizzle a little of the juices all over sliced meat.
