Default the price of frozen goose

I tried to buy a goose at Christmas and was horrified at the price, My local publix was selling a 9lb goose for around fifty dollars!!!, I went back on friday and the same goose is now between 8 and 9 dollars!!! i am in heaven!!
I am pretty sure its the some geese that were there at Christmas and they have dropped the price, but hey, its frozen so it should be good!!! if it is, i am going back to buy 3 or 4 more!!!!

Wow! I will have to check whether my local prices have gone down. I remember goose being about $50 when I looked a few months ago, but maybe that was holiday inflation. My husband suggested we try it sometime, but no way for that kind of expense!

I've never had goose before. Is it darker and more oily, like duck?

yes, its very oily and red meat, you dont have to cook it to oblivion I found a recipe that tells you to cut off the breasts once they are done then to brown the skin more in a pan of goose fat, it was amazing!!!!

At that price, sounds like a good way to make some $$.

I enjoy watching (and listening to) them waddle around. So does my dog, but her interest is prey-driven.

Why bother when you can go down to the local park and snag a few out of the pond?

I don't enjoy how much they muck up the paths along the river!
