@robirdstx How many people would your goose serve for dinner? Remember what the bird weighed?
Can’t say how many our goose would have served, but I have been surprised at the amount of meat this bird has given us. The bird weighed about 10 1/2 pounds. The first meal was the legs for two. I did not finish my portion. The second meal was a half breast shared with the two of us, with a bit leftover that I had for breakfast the next day. When I pulled the rest of the meat together, I had just under a pound. Four ounces were used for the goose and noodles soup. Two cups were used in tonight’s pot pie, which made 8 servings, and most of the other half of the breast has gone into the freezer for a future use, along with some of the skin to make cracklins. The goose also gave us lots of fat and stock. Three cups of fat and a quart of stock have been added to the freezer, along with the carcass to make more stock when needed. A very generous goose!
