I made this skipping the boiling water step. My goose was not crispy, but that is not the recipe's fault. I baked it 3 hours in total, it was a little dry (compare to what I have had before).
I suggest people who try to cook goose for the first time should realize that a goose of same weight of a turkey would give less meat. I mean for my 11 goose, 3 lb was the grease-- I measured it! It is harder to carve than a turkey too. I served 10 people with this goose, and each person barely got 2 piece of meat. It was a good thing that was a pot luck, so there were other meats.
I took the left over home and picked out the rest of meat and cooked a soup. The next day my family of 4 had a soup noodle with goose meat -- chinese style.
