How to cook goose

2-3 hours before cooking, lightly prick the skin over the breast and season generously with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven, cover the goose with foil and roast for 30 mins at 220°C. Baste with the fat and reduce the heat to 180°C. Put the goose on a wire rack in a roasting tin. Roast for 30 mins per kilo, basting half way through. If the skin looks as if it may be starting to burn, cover with foil towards the end of cooking. To check the bird is cooked, insert a sharp knife into the thickest part of the leg where it joins the breast, the juices should run clear.

Leave to rest for 20 mins before carving. Use the giblets and wing tips for stock/gravy.

Organic goose farmer

Ross Gardner rears our geese at Otter Valley Farm in Devon. His family has been farming poultry for 45 years, so they certainly know how to keep their birds happy. The geese pad around the fields in a small flock and graze the organic pasture, as well as getting a little supplementary organic feed. They are determined foragers and have plenty of outdoor space to express their natural behaviour. At night, they prefer to head inside their straw-filled barn.
