    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 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!  -  06 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  14 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
