1 large yellow onion (chopped)
1 large tart apple (chopped)
¼ cup chicken stock
6 cups toasted fresh bread crumbs
½ cup currants or chopped raisins
¼ cup sliced almonds (toasted)
¼ cup finely chopped parsley
1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper
1/3 cup chicken stock
1 goose (7 to 8 pounds), giblets removed


In a small saucepan, combine the onion, apple, and ¼ cup stock. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until onion and apple are tender.

In a large mixing bowl, combine onion mixture, bread crumbs, currants, almonds, parsley, sage, salt, and pepper. Mix the remaining 1/3 cup broth with bread crumb mixture.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Rinse goose; drain, and pat dry. Prick the skin on the lower breast, legs, and around the wings with a skewer. Stuff and truss goose. Then, place goose, breast-side-up, on a rack in large roasting pan. Spoon the remaining stuffing into a lightly greased casserole dish; cover and refrigerate.

Roast goose for 2 to 2 ½ hours draining the fat often. Bake the covered casserole of stuffing alongside the goose during the last 30 minutes of roasting. Let the goose stand for 15 to 20 minutes. Carve goose; discard the skin.
