The only thing that I could think of while I was sitting next to my husband in the duck blind, after a flock of Geese flew over us and he took two shots and said that he got him was..."Now the goose is on the table...and the pudding made of fig..." This is our first year hunting waterfowl, and it is so much fun, the best part is that we can spend quality time together. I have never prepared something like this before, but, with the economy the way it is, the goose was a blessing. I found this recipe by luck, and it sounds really good, it will be how I prepare my Christmas goose. I will let you know how it turns out. This recipe doesn't include the time it takes to pluck the bird :P UPDATE!!!! This was the Blue Ribbon winner at the table...I was told that EVERY time a goose gets brought home, I am automatically the chosen one to prep and cook it! Please!!! someone else try this and tell me what ya think!!
