Just search for goose fat.

Just search for goose fat.



That brings up scores of items, so I then just searched for goose - just three items none of which are showing as goose fat?!!! I can only assume it's a reginal thing? (not North London in that case!)

It's on Tesco.com. Go into groceries then search for goose fat. It's still there.

Hmmm lovely on toast.

Great if you are thinking about swimming the channel.

The ONLY goose fat that I have coming up (Essex) is this one.

Like I say, it's regional, here's the results I see when I type "goose" in the Tesco grocery search box...

Really unhealthy- 10p seems too much to pay for a dead bird's fat! Yuck!

Cheaper than vaseline or astroglide.

mmmmmm fat.

Of course it's unhealthy, it's fat. We're not talking about eating it three times a day, every day for a year, but for cooking roast potatoes to go with a nice, traditional family roast dinner.

This is not the place for brown rice fans and food fascists to further their creed, it's a place to vote on deals on the basis of their price... which in this case is very low.

Voted hot.

Banned

I used this stuff at christmas it's fantastic when you brush it over your sunday roast before it goes in the oven, just lightly tho.

I look forward to tasting your Olive or rapeseed oil roast potatoes (ord do I?) :roll:

Great price so voted hot!

None available round here, online or in the stores. I gather there's only a very small quantity of it in just a few places.

non by me :x

well I'll be hoping to see some jars for sale in the fs/ft forum!!

i think i feel sick!.... heat added though.

Only if you lack any form of common sense or will power.

"In the final analysis, the argument is quite simple. Animal fats - beef, pork, lamb, goose, duck and chicken - are more fun than vegetable ones. In large quantities, they are worse for you, certainly, but they are far, far more pleasurable. So, the question is not if we should eat them, but how much."

There is nothing better than this for making great roasties - salad dodgers unite

The health argument is actually pretty controversial- a lot of 'experts' claim there is not too much wrong with eating a high quantity of animal fat. As part of my job we have a nutritionist who speaks to us on a regular basis and his mantra is always "fat is not fattening". There is also a community (I forget where) who have the highest known proportion of duck and goose fat in their diet and have an extremely low rate of heart disease. The stall that specialises in goose fat at Borough Market also have a huge sign saying "Healthier than olive oil"... although not sure how they can get away with a claim such as that!

What you REALLY have to look out for is partially hydrogenated and trans-fats. i.e. the man-made, unnatural stuff that humans were never meant to eat. IMO, stuff like margerine is way worse for you. I swear if people saw it made then it would never get purchased again- it is essentially an artificially hydrogenated, grey, foul smelling goo that is then dyed yellow and chemicals are added to get rid of the smell. Yuck!!

Anyway, probably a debate to be had in a forum other than this. Very cheap price- so HOT!!

Often France is used as an example here. They have high fat diets - think foie gras, fatty meat, gizzards, etc - but the common claim is that the negative effect of this fat their bodies is counteracted by the amount of red wine they drink

So goose-fat and claret it is, then

i love lard

Mmmm.... now you're talking!! :thumbsup:

Goose fat.....somebody turn th e heat up!!!!!.

Great for the price. If Delia Smith uses it, then it's fine for me.. You get my vote of approval.

This stuff is foul ! stick a wick in it and it will burn 10 times longer than a candle ! :-D

Tis a good fine deal. For those that love cooking it's great and when used in moderation it's fine, as with anything. Stop and think what's used when you eat out, you'd be amazed !!!

"So goose-fat and claret it is, then"

Made me laugh out loud

Great for roasts but can anyone tell me where all this goose fat comes from? I see lots of goose fat but no cooked geese....

Incidentally, it only works when bird is dead.

Gas mark 8 for 2 hours :-D

Wow, you ordered 3 jars and you got tin! At least they wont break... :-p

I normally use Festins goose fat, so at 10p this is a great deal for me. I recommend roasting a duck and saving the fat from that though.

Our neighbour's dog was a bit of a porker, so I tried this chef's trick with it - the roasties I made tasted ruff (but at least there's no incessant barking now)
