We’re not trying to be bullies but goose is fat. Goose is fattier than chicken or turkey and tougher to cook. We’re talking a lot of fat. If you’re buying a goose to eat, we’ve learned that a smaller goose is easier to cook and tastes better.
Now, all that fat doesn’t mean you should steer clear of cooking goose. The fat is easy to remove and you can use it later. The meat itself is still rather lean. If prepared correctly, goose meat is rich, flavorful, and a welcome alternative to chicken.
