Goose from Lidl

The Observer Food Monthly top tipped the frozen goose from Lidl as a cracking bargain – if prepared properly it would be just as good as any free range organic freedom food bird on the market.not a goose

How times have changed now when we hear “We actually had goose last year” we are less likely to reply “was it enjoyable – you aspirational twerp?”

I have bought one of these for the last 3 years now and never been disappointed.
Six years ago I paid £35 for one in M&S,
5 years ago I paid £45 in local butcher, then 4 years ago after paying £65 for one in butcher I decided to try this, and none of us could tell the difference.
Money saving expert forum have a discussion of them.

I must admit I only paid £15 last year, but still worth the £20 this year.

why buy this if you can get a swan from the nerest river for free

These come pre-killed.

1. You wouldn't want to argue with a swan
2. The Queen own's them, so you'd probably get locked up.

Good price for the goose.

The picture is a Canadian goose. The ones LIDL sell are Polish.

That parasite owns nothing, good deal

Are they instore now? Link not working. Assuming they're not still in Poland!

They're really milking the price now, they used to be £6.99 and a real bargain when nobody was interested, then the restaurants found out about them and cleared the stocks each year so the price just goes up and up.

Can you tell the difference by their accent?

Went in last week and man said they were due in anytime, so keep coming in.

Not advertised in paper or leaflet though.
Best just to call in and see.

Canada Goose is a trademark for a clothing range. It would be against the law to "pass off" these Canadian geese under that brand name.

FCUK is also a clothing brand and I can still tell someone to clothing off - it is still CANADA GOOSE (GEESE) by the way. NOT Canadian.

sounds good, i may have a gander at this

"it is still CANADA GOOSE"

And I tell you they are Polish.

Isn't Goose meat a bit greasy...haven't tried goose since I was a child.

That's £5/kilo for relatively insipid meat (albeit better than chicken or turkey). For less than that price you can have 6 vastly tastier pheasant delivered to your door here:

Think that was for goose breast not a whole goose.

They have them in store at Hunslet, Leeds

They were the same price last year. The fat comes in useful but I wouldn't say goose is much nicer than turkey.
May go for pheasant this year.

By the way, Poland is not in Canada. :o)

heat just for the pic lol

Wowhats

Make sure you pierce skin all over and roast on a trivet then it won't be greasy at all.

Don't baste it but you'll want to spoon off that fat for roasties :-)
Edited by: "bigsky" 22nd Nov 2010

Must admit I had some and it was greasy so wouldn't have it again.

dont know a thing about geese but voted hot because of the picture. haha - looks like lidl are doing taxidermy now.

British Common Law contains the notion of Royal Prerogative which … British Common Law contains the notion of Royal Prerogative which includes such important powers as the dissolution of Parliament, calling an election, decaration of war, the awarding honours and many others.Under Royal Prerogative, only the Monarch has the power to do these things, although as a constitutional monarch they are almost always done under the advice of the Prime Minister.There are some historical quirks of this, one of which is that the Monarch owns all wild swans living in open water - of the species called 'mute' swans. Other species of swans, and those owned by individuals are not owned by Her Majesty.Contrary to common belief among some people (including some British people) it is not treason to kill a wild swan and it does not carry the death penalty.


That's cleared things up for me then, Roast swan sarnie anyone?

Glad you all enjoyed the piccie!!!
As for the fat.......you need to cook it on tray as Bigsky says and keep draining fat off.
I emptied it out into demi jar (or jam jars) then keep in fridge to use as best fat for roast potatoes.
Each time this has lasted about 1year (using once a week) so worth it.
As for cooking goose:

Enjoy everyone!!

I noticed the "whole goose" under the post for "3 pack thongs"...........may make a nice surprise for someone
