"This an easy way to prepare wild goose for the hunters or family. You can use goose with the skin on, but the meat will be greasier." — Matt Schwab

1 (10 pound)
whole, skinned goose
2 (32 ounce) jars
sauerkraut with liquid
My husband had already de-boned the goose, so we baked it that way and we only added 1 jar of sauerkraut (2 seemed like a lot.)It was the best goose I'd ever tasted, but I am not a big fan of goose. My husband, who loves goose loved the meal and the goose was quite tender. The sour of the kraut and sweetness of the applesauce and brown sugar make a nice combination.
Way too much kraut.
This is a very good recipe. We liked it and it reminds me of our Czech Grandma's goose and duck dinners. Very Good!
Will make again
A very good way to prepare goose. My husband and son are avid waterfowl hunters so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare their bounty. They don't clean their geese/ducks whole, they only save the breasts (except rarely). So, I cut goose breast meat into large chunks and just put it into the crockpot raw with everything else. Dinner will be in an hour, but I took a bite out to "taste test" it. Very good and I'm sure there won't be any leftovers! Thank you!
As close as I want to get to Goose is a friendly game of Duck, Duck Goose; however, my husband used this recipe last fall after one of his hunting expeditions and the men folk seemed to like it. I went shopping that day. One of the nice things about Allrecipes is that it has something for everyone; thanks for the post.
I had to halve the recipe because like Mother Ann I only had the goose breasts to work with. To lessen the amount of carbs, I used a shredded rutabaga instead of potato and unsweetened applesauce. Next time I think I might use my Mom's sauerkraut recipe, which adds a bit of bacon and onions to the mix. Other than that a great recipe Matt, thanks for posting!
My boyfriend and his father have so much goose meat during the fall and I wanted to take a stab at my own way to prepare it so I found this recipe and wanted to wow them. They loved it! As for myself never having goose meat before it was good, but I think I enjoyed the sauerkraut more than the actual meat. The brown sugar was definitely good in it, but the meat was still very gamey for me. Overall though great recipe and will keep it in mind for next year!
