Tesco have Lakeland whole goose (4kgs- 4.4kgs) for £15.00 in the freezer section. We are on our third one this weekend since we spotted them last month! A fab treat - absolutely delicious.

Very important to gently stab them with a fork horizontally (not vertically) to allow the fat to ooze out into the tray without piercing the meat which loses juices and dries out the meat.

Does anyone know what the welfare is like on these? Says they are British so should be ok. Local free range 6kg Bronze Turkey is about £60. Not sure which to get.

Geese cannot be reared in batteries. You may be thinking of the foie gras trade which is all about the liver being increased in size and is not applicable to these as the liver is with the giblets.

Geese are completely different to other poultry; they need to roam about and that is why they are a top choice for free range poultry.

It is also the no 1 choice for Christmas and other occasions in many, many central, east and north European countries.

Hope this is helpful.

This is what they get for chasing people when they're feeding ducks

To anyone that will wade in with the "I'll stick with a Traditional turkey"... Goose was the traditional Christmas dinner bird until the 1900s when Bernard Matthews started rearing them over here. Poor people would traditionally have a chicken or fish for dinner.

It may be a silly question but would you get more meat from 2 goose crowns or 1 whole goose? Seeing as the total spend would be very similar I'm intrigued! Cheers in advance

Joe Grundy insists Geese are all fat, ..& that everyone ought to buy one of his Eddie's Turkey's.

Clarrie'll be in the plucking shed soon enough & the feathers'll be flying not just from their two "boi's"

Anyone else read that as Wild Goose Chase?

Seen these in my local store (Farnworth) this morning, also seen Lamb Guard of Honour that looked good value at £11.99

It's the "Case of the Whole Goose Deal"

It's also a pun on popular HUKD posts regarding difficulty in locating a hot deal

Wiki quote:
"The pun, also called paronomasia, is a form of word play that suggests two or more meanings, by exploiting multiple meanings of words, or of similar-sounding words, for an intended humorous or rhetorical effect."

I'm hosting christmas dinner for the family this year and I've just got no chance of fitting a frozen bird in the freezer. What does a goose cost fresh? (5 adults and 3-4 kids) probably also cooking ham.

Tesco ones do! I cannot confirm the same for Lidl ones! :-)

Seriously though, many people are put off duck / goose by a perception that it is ''very fatty / greasy''. This is not the case though if you do stab the skin only (i.e. horizontally) to create rows of tiny holes and then roast them on a trivet of some kind (I use a mesh rack normally used for cooling bread and cakes or the one often found inside a grill pan).

Then the goose or duck layer of fat melts and flows out of the bird like Mount Etna and as other posters have said you just pour off the fat and can use it for amazing roast potatoes. It keeps for ages in the fridge.

There are many roast goose recipes on the web from the likes of Jamie Oliver and the BBC and there is even a surprisingly easy one by Gordon Ramsey.

All the usual turkey and duck accompaniments work very well with Goose too but because it is so traditional in North and East European countries, I also serve ''easy red cabbage''. Instead of making it with raw red cabbage, I just buy a large 680gms jar of ready-to-heat Dawtona Red Cabbage with Apples for 99p (and often on offer at two for £1.50 in the World Foods / Polish section at Tesco) and add a teaspoon of mixed spice, a few raisins or sultanas and a glass or two of red wine (or a little red wine vinegar mixed with some water and some sugar) then simmer it for about 20 minutes during which you can taste it and adjust the added ingredients to your own preferences.

I have been amazed over the years at the number of grease-hating ''converts'' I am responsible for after feeding them duck or goose which has been stabbed as above! I should probably also be amazed at the cost of all my hospitality - goose is notorious for having less meat than the other poultry - do not believe any of the ''Feeds 'X' people'' claims!

Hope this helps some readers.

Halloween & Guy Fawkes are over - roll on Christmas! And a very Happy Sunday to HUKD people.
