GREEK RECIPE: Roast Goose
Wash and singe goose. Rub inside and out with lemon juice. Let stand for 15 minutes, then wipe dry. Place goose on a rack in a baking pan. Place in a pre-heated 325° oven allowing about 40 minutes per pound. Meanwhile heat butter in a skillet and saute onions until golden. Add diluted tomato paste and seasonings. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes and set aside. After 1 hour of roasting, prick goose with a fork into body, wings and legs to draw out fat. At last hour of estimated roasting time, pour out all fat that has collected in the pan. Baste with the tomato sauce every 15 minutes until goose is tender. Serves 6.
