1 goose or 1 duck
1- 1 1/2 kg / 2 lb 3 oz – 3 lb 5 oz apples (if cooking goose)
750 g / 1 lb 11 oz apples (if cooking duck)
2 tbsp butter
Stuff prepared goose with apples that have had their core removed and sliced. Sew the belly with thread. Place the goose on frying pan, add 1/2 cup water and put in the oven. Pour the goose over with fat and juice that has been forming several times. Cook for 1 1/2 – 2 hours.
Once goose is ready, remove the thread, take out the apples with spoon, place them on a plate. Chop goose into pieces and place on top on apples.
Duck with apples is made the same way. Goose and duck not stuffed with apples can also be prepared in same fashion. Baked apples, braised cabbage, buckwheat or potatoes can be served as garnish.
