    2 hours 25 min

    This is a simpler roast goose than my other recipe on the site, but equally delicious. My family loves either at Christmas.

    1. Sprinkle the goose cavity with salt and pepper. Place the apple, orange and lemon in the cavity. Place goose breast side up on a rack in a large roasting tin. Prick skin well with a fork. Pour water into tin.
    2. Roast the goose uncovered at 180 C / Gas 4 for 2 to 3 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 85 degrees C. To let the juices redistribute, cover goose with foil and let stand for 20 minutes before carving.
