Roast Goose with Apple Stuffing
(Gansebraten mit Apfelfullung)




  1. Trim excess fat from goose. Heat giblets, water, sliced onion and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until giblets are done, about 1 hour.
  2. Strain broth; cover and refrigerate.
  3. Chop giblets; toss with remaining ingredients except 1 teaspoon salt and the flour.
  4. Rub cavity of goose with 1 teaspoon salt. Fold wings across back with tips touching. Fill neck and body cavities of goose lightly with stuffing. Fasten neck skin of goose to back with skewers. Fasten opening with skewers; lace with string. Tie drumsticks to tail. Prick skin all over with fork Place goose, breast side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan.
  5. Roast uncovered at 350 degrees F until done, 3 to 3 1/2 hours, removing excess fat from pan occasionally. Place a tent of aluminum foil loosely over goose during last hour to prevent excessive browning. Goose is done when drumstick meat feels very soft.
  6. Place goose on heated platter. Let stand 15 minutes for easier carving.
  7. Pour off all but 1/4 cup drippings from pan. Stir in flour. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly.
