Christmas meat

Today we slaughtered the Christmas goose, as generations of our ancestors must have done. Historically goose was the meat eaten by most people, and turkey was only eaten by the very rich. I think this is because Geese are hardy grazers that basically fatten themselves. This was the second goose we despatched and it was very quick and stress free. Weirdly this one didn’t weight any more than the one we despatched a few months ago. 3.7 kg.
