My husband is always bringing home wild game and waiting in eager anticipation for me to come up with some magical way to prepare it! This is absolutely the best recipe I have found for goose breast! He was pleasantly surprised with this dish and said it was better than he thought it would be. The sauce complimented the meat perfectly and the only ingredient I lacked was the caraway...it was great without it. I don't know if this makes a difference or not but my husband insists on soaking the goose breast in milk for a couple days and then juice (apple, cranraspberry, etc.) for a day or two. He says it removes the gamey taste. Thanks for a great, easy recipe. We will definately use again!

This recipe was way too tangy to be mixed with the gamey quality of the goose, and it didn't make it tender at all. Also, it took closer to an hour to cook, not 30 minutes. I won't be making this again.

We make wild goose with this glaze all the time. It's easy and it's good. If you don't like gamey meat, you probably aren't going to like gamey meat with this glaze. The glaze compliments the flavor, rather than over powers it. I never pay attention to the length of time we cook it, but just check on it occationally. But don't let it dry out!

Excellent! I've killed alot of geese, but never really truly enjoyed them. This was awesome and easy!

Really a nice recipe for wild goose. All three of my children gobbled it up! It didn't overpower the meat but did a nice job adding flavor!

Delicious!! Our husband had a very successful first goose hunt and we were unsure of what to do with the meat. I was a bit leery that it might be too gamey but it was delicious! Our 15 month old ate a full adult portion and my FIL requested me to make this for him to take to the boys on their next hunting trip. I didn't change a thing and it was perfect. Thank you!

it might be that I just don't like goose, but I thought it was not tender AT ALL it was tough and leathery, however I had never had goose before this, my husband went out killing geese and I felt I had to vindicate him by cooking his kill, but no it was not good. I am not looking forward to goose hunting season.

Dear friends, I had family over for dinner and surprised them with Christopher's recipe. Four out of the five sitting at the dinner table gave me the thumbs up! Great dish!
