Chinese Honey Goose

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Whole goose


1 Lemon
4 c Water
3 tb Honey
3 tb Dark soy sauce
2/3 c Rice wine or dry sherry

IF THE GOOSE IS FROZEN, thaw it thoroughly. Rinse the goose well and blot
it completely dry with paper towels. Insert a meat hook near the neck.
Using a sharp knife, cut the lemon into 1/4-inch slices, leaving the rind
on. Combine the lemon slices with the rest of the honey syrup ingredients
in a large pot and bring the mixture to a boil. Turn the heat to low and
simmer for about 20 minutes. Using a large ladle or spoon, pour this
mixture over the goose several times, as if to bathe it, until all of the
skin is completely coated with the mixture. Hang the goose in a cool,
well-ventilated place to dry for 4-or-5 hours, or hang it in front of a
cold fan for about 3 hoursin either case, the longer the better. Once the
goose has dried, the surface of the skin will feel like parchment. Preheat
the oven to 475F. Meanwhile, place the goose on a rack in a roasting pan,
breast side up. Put 2/3 cup of water into the roasting pan. Now put the
goose into the oven and roast it for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F and
continue to roast for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove the goose from the oven
and let it sit for at least 10 minutes before you carve it. Using a cleaver
or sharp knife, cut the skin and meat into pieces and arrange them on a
warm platter.
