Goose With Mustard And Apple Glaze
The goose is an important bird and requires respect. It cannot be cooked on the run. But if you follow all the rules, you get a wonderful meal.
Dears, a meat so fine, juicy, soft and tasty my mouth has never tasted! A goose can be a real delight, if you keep in mind a few requirements: choose a fatty bird, season it and leave it to cool overnight in the refrigerator, then roast it until the meat is done and just finish browning it.
Believe me, it is a dish that will be a real culinary spectacle whenever you serve it and it will not be easily forgotten!
But… a little temperance, the goose is still fat and caloric (like everything that is good, very good, divine)!
