The legs and thighs of a wild goose are some of the tastiest, easiest-to-cook parts of a bird. When prepared properly, they will be extremely tender, with a flavour like roast beef. The trick is to cook them low and slow so the tendons and connective tissues break down. The become gelatin and collagen, ensuring the final taste is even better.
You can cook legs and thighs in water, but there are some much more flavourful options to transform muscle fibers into delicious morsels. Tomatoes are naturally acidic and help to break down meat, without disguising the taste. After all, a goose fattened up on barley and field peas should be just as delicious as beef raised with the same diet!
