When I was reading about holiday food traditions around the world, this one sounded so good to me: Russian Roast Goose with Apples. I personally never had roast goose over the holidays, although I hear about it everywhere! In Russia, a roast goose with apples is like a Thanksgiving turkey with stuffing. Roasting a goose is not the same as roasting a chicken or a turkey; It's skin is very thick and fatty, so it requires a few extra steps to prepare for roasting compared to other birds. It is simple, though, and well worth it! Enjoy this holiday classic!
