A large, web-footed, wild or domestic bird prized for its delicious meat. They are very popular in European countries where they are a traditional Christmas favorite. Most of the geese sold in the United States are frozen, so it is important to follow standard safety practices when defrosting. Always defrost a goose in the refrigerator to avoid any problems with the excessive growth of harmful bacteria. Defrosting in the refrigerator may require two days, depending on the size of the bird. Never refreeze a goose after it has been thawed. Geese weighing from 6 to 18 pounds are popular for roasting. They are well suited for roasting because their excessive quantity of fat helps to keep the meat moist while it cooks.
