Cooking

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/Gas 7. Remove the foil, baste with the fat and reduce the heat to 180°C/Gas 4. 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 again 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.

About the farmers

The veg in your box is grown in our own fields, or by our small-scale farmer friends.
