    Buying Tips

    Check the “Sell By” date on the package. This date indicates the last day the goose should be offered for sale. Meat and poultry should be prepared as soon as possible after the date of purchase, and used beyond the Sell By date only occasionally, if at all. Goose should be clear of feathers and have a clean smell. Frozen goose should be frozen solid, and with no tears in the wrapping.

    Varieties

    Goose can be wild or domestic. Young geese, under 8 months old, weigh 8 to 10 pounds (3,600 to 4,500g) and are more tender than older geese. The rich specialty pâté called foie gras is made from the enlarged goose liver produced by force-feeding geese with grain. Confit is cooked goose preserved in goose fat.
