Chopped green onions

To make the stock, cut up geese and place them in a very large pot; cover with water. Add 2 tb. salt, 1 medium onion, 2 celery stalks and 4 garlic cloves. Bring to a boil; simmer 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove geese; let cool. Debone meat, cutting meat into bite-size pieces. Return bones and skin to pot and simmer 30 minutes. Strain stock, reserving 3 quarts.

To make roux, use a cast iron skillet and add bacon grease. Sift in small portions of the flour until you've added the whole amount. Do this at medium heat, stirring constantly (constant stirring is _very important_, you will ruin the roux if you don't do this!), until the mixture is the color of a dark penny. This will take 15 to 45 minutes. To the roux, add 1 3/4 c. chopped onions, 1 1/4 c. each chopped bell pepper and celery, and 1 tb. minced garlic. Saute vegetables in roux until tender.

To very large pot, add hot stock and roux. Bring to a boil and then add 1 tb. salt, 1/2 tb. each red and black pepper, 1 tb. Tabasco and 2 tb. chopped parsley. Simmer one hour.

Add cut up goose and sausage. Simmer 45 minutes. Add shucked oysters; simmer 10 minutes.

Serve over rice and garnish with chopped green onions.
