TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2-3/4 hours + standing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 domestic goose (10 to 12 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 small navel oranges, divided
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle goose with salt, sage and pepper; prick skin well with a fork. Cut three oranges into quarters; place in goose cavity. Tuck wings under goose; tie drumsticks together. Place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. (Cover loosely with foil if goose browns too quickly). If necessary, drain fat from pan as it accumulates.
  • 3. Cut peel from remaining oranges into long thin strips; cut oranges into sections, discarding membranes. Set aside.
  • 4. Place goose on a serving platter; cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium heat, cook and stir corn syrup and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Stir in orange sections and peel; heat through.
  • 5. Brush glaze over goose. Spoon orange sections and peel around goose. Yield: 10 servings.
