Growing up on a farm in Calontir regularly taking part in hunting and fishing
that waterfowl act was very pesky...but there was almost always a goose in the
cold storage waiting for a holiday. Often I have dreamed about having a small
hobby farm with an old fashioned vegetable garden, a flock of chickens, a small
herd of swine, and a flock of those brown farm geese. The garden would provide
fresh herbs and vegetables year round if done correctly, the swine could produce
suckling pigs for feasts, the chickens fresh eggs year round, and those geese
roaming about pecking at weeds and growing nice and plump for just such
occasions. But alas such things are still just dreams for now.
So what side dishes go well with a traditional roast goose?
