|10 to 12 lb goose||2 Tbs butter|
|3 tsp salt||1 cup bread crumbs|
|1 mp pepper||1 small onion, minced|
|2 tsp caraway seeds||1/8 tsp cayenne pepper|
|3 cups sliced apples|
Wash the goose and carefully remove any remaining feathers. Dry thoroughly. Combine the salt, pepper, and caraway seeds and rub into the skin and inside of the goose. This is best done at least 8 hours before using to allow the seasoning to be absorbed.
Place the apples in a saucepan with the water. Cook over low heat until very soft, about 20 minutes. Mash the apples with a fork and add the bread crumbs, minced onion, and cayenne pepper. Mix well. Stuff the goose with the apple mixture and fasten the opening with skewers or with thread. Roast in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 3 hours. Pour off the fat as it accumulates. At the end of 2 hours, carefully pour 1 cup of ice water over the skin . Baste a few times during the ﬁnal hour of roasting. The skin should be crisp and brown when the goose is completed.

[Archie about Wolfe] “He did not lift his eyes from the page, his head did not move, there was no stirring of his entire frame in the specially constructed enormous chair behind his desk; but l saw his right foreﬁnger wriggle faintly – his magic wand, as he once called it- and I knew I had him.” ~ League of Frightened Men
