I made this skipping the boiling water step. My goose was not crispy, but that is not the recipe's fault. I baked it 3 hours in total, it was a little dry (compare to what I have had before). I suggest people who try to cook goose for the first time should realize that a goose of same weight of a turkey would give less meat. I mean for my 11 goose, 3 lb was the grease-- I measured it! It is harder to carve than a turkey too. I served 10 people with this goose, and each person barely got 2 piece of meat. It was a good thing that was a pot luck, so there were other meats. I took the left over home and picked out the rest of meat and cooked a soup. The next day my family of 4 had a soup noodle with goose meat -- chinese style. - 18 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I threw a dinner party for 12 last night and this recipe was the main entree. I have never made goose before, but this recipe turned out beautifully. It was very involved and time consuming, but the end result was well worth it. In short, this was delicious. - 26 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
