Happy New Year!

You will need:

Large onion, peeled and sliced;

Salt and pepper.

  • Place the onions in a layer in your roasting tin.
  • Stuff the goose and place it, breast down, in the pan and roast for 1 – 1 ½ hours.
  • Turn the bird breast side up, scatter with salt and pepper and roast for another hour or so, spiking with a thin skewer every 20 minutes.
  • Drain off the fat at intervals and jar it to make the most delicious roast potatoes.
