Happy Goose-mas

Today was D day for our two Christmas Geese. These are our two Blatts Farm Geese, an unexpected gift.

Slaughtering, plucking and processing geese takes a long time but is totally worth it. This year we were aiming to make 3 things from each goose. A stuffed neck, a lovely roasting bird and black pudding.

The slaughter was very quick and quiet, 50 meters from where they were raised. The plucking took me about 1 hour 30, and Becky 3 hours. Her bird was a lot neater than mine.20121222-221959.jpg

It’s all looking good so far. More updates tomorrow on tastes!
