This is a great recipe for that wild bird you're not sure what to do with. Sweet and tangy at the same time.

My husband is always bringing home wild game and waiting in eager anticipation for me to come up with some magical way to prepare it! This is absolutely the best recipe I have found for goose breast! He was pleasantly surprised with this dish and said it was better than he thought it would be. The sauce complimented the meat perfectly and the only ingredient I lacked was the caraway...it was great without it. I don't know if this makes a difference or not but my husband insists on soaking the goose breast in milk for a couple days and then juice (apple cranraspberry etc.) for a day or two. He says it removes the gamey taste. Thanks for a great easy recipe. We will definately use again! Read More

This recipe was way too tangy to be mixed with the gamey quality of the goose and it didn't make it tender at all. Also it took closer to an hour to cook not 30 minutes. I won't be making this again. Read More

We make wild goose with this glaze all the time. It's easy and it's good. If you don't like gamey meat you probably aren't going to like gamey meat with this glaze. The glaze compliments the flavor rather than over powers it. I never pay attention to the length of time we cook it but just check on it occationally. But don't let it dry out! Read More

Really a nice recipe for wild goose. All three of my children gobbled it up! It didn't overpower the meat but did a nice job adding flavor! Read More

Delicious!! Our husband had a very successful first goose hunt and we were unsure of what to do with the meat. I was a bit leery that it might be too gamey but it was delicious! Our 15 month old ate a full adult portion and my FIL requested me to make this for him to take to the boys on their next hunting trip. I didn't change a thing and it was perfect. Thank you! Read More

it might be that I just don't like goose but I thought it was not tender AT ALL it was tough and leathery however I had never had goose before this my husband went out killing geese and I felt I had to vindicate him by cooking his kill but no it was not good. I am not looking forward to goose hunting season. Read More
