1 goose, whole 4 kg
1/2 lemons 60 g
3 apples, green, Granny Smith type, sliced 550 g
10 pitted prunes 1/3 cup
1 cup water 250 mL
2 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 16 g
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 26 g
1/2 cup whipping cream 35% 125 mL
1 pinch salt 0.1 g
1 pinch ground pepper 0.1 g
aluminum foil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.
  2. Remove the entrails of the goose and rinse it well. Rub it in with salt, pepper and lemon, both inside and out. Fill the goose with the sliced apples and prunes. Truss the bird with string.
  3. Place the goose breast-side-up on a rack in a deep roasting pan. Pour water into the pan. Put in the middle of the oven. Roast for 2 hours or longer (allow 30 min per kilo), until thighs temperature is at 185°F/85°C. Baste every 30 min with pan juices during roasting. Cover with foil if the skin starts to become too dark.
  4. About 15 min before the goose is ready, pour off the juices and set them aside. Remove the foil and raise the heat to 435°F/225°C to brown the skin.
  5. Meanwhile prepare the sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the flour stirring constantly and taking care not to let it burn. Slowly add the measured amount of frying pan juices, while stirring thoroughly to avoid lumps. Add cream, salt and pepper. Adjust to taste. Let simmer on medium-low heat for a few more minutes.
  6. Take the goose out of the oven then let stand for about 15 min before carving. Serve with the sauce and the stuffing
