Roast Goose Stuffed with Nuts and Fruit

1 8-10 pound goose
4 Apples
2 c Chestnuts; peeled, cooked
1/2 c Raisins
1 c Prunes
Salt; to taste


Remove the excess fat from the cavity and giblets. Render the fat and save to use in cooking. Peel, core and dice the apples. Mix them with the chestnuts, raisins and prunes and stuff the cavity about 3/4 full. After stuffing the goose, truss it and place the bird breast side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Rub with salt. Roast for 1 hour in a 400 oven. Prick the skin with a fork at 1/2 inch intervals to let the fat escape. Reduce the temp to 350 and roast or another hour. As the fat accumulates, remove it with a bulb banter. To test for doneness, prick the thigh with a fork; the juices should be yellowish. If they are tinged with pink and further cooking is necessary reduce the oven to 325 and continue roasting until the goose is cooked. Remove more drippings with a bulb banter and let the bird rest for 15 minutes before carving. Meanwhile put the pan on top of the stove and bring to a simmer. Using a spoon try to break up the bottom crust, stirring constantly until dissolved. Use the bulb banter to remove the pan juices to a bowl for gravy.
