Please note: This product is only available for delivery from the 19th of December. 

An Embden crossbreed, reared slowly on a diet of grassland herbage from the fields and meadows surrounding Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire. The Botterills’ geese are quite famous, driven across the village on foot each day from barn to field, and back again in time for bed. A rich and flavoursome bird, with plenty of fat for top-notch roast potatoes.

Cooking Instructions

Prick the skin and fatty parts with a skewer but don't pierce the meat. Then season with plenty of salt and pepper.

Place on a rack over a deep baking tray and roast for 3-4 hours (depending on whether you have a small, mediuy, or large goose) at 180°C / 350°F / Mark 4. You may need to drain off excess fat a couple of times.

Once cooked, rest the bird well while you roast your potatoes in the delicious goose fat.

Storage Advice

Please remove all wrapping and place your bird on a plate on the bottom shelf of your fridge away from cooked items so that air can circulate properly.
