This year's goose must have spent its life running around a lot as it was firm and a bit sinewy (not dry just a bit tough). Lovely taste though.

This goose was absolutely perfect for 4 good servings. The flesh was soft and delicious. A really luxurious Christmas lunch.
We continued our feast Boxing Day with Beef Fillet Roast (bone -in). Once again perfect for 4 good servings.
