I assume that the geese you are using are specks? Just curious because I've always heard that Canada legs taste like rubber?

Canada legs and thighs are the best part of the bird. Guys never try these birds, it is always, I've heard they taste like rubber.

Truthfully, I like canada geese a lot, I like snow geese even more. Way better eating. They have been given a bad reputation by people.

we used both lesser canada and Specklebelly goose legs and thighs in the gumbo-both were delicious! When you cook them so long that they fall apart-trust me, they do not taste like rubber.

Making a triple batch this year SCHNETZ. :thumbsup: should make about 3.5 gallons of soup. We'll eat on a little of it, I'll give some to a family friend, and the rest will go to the Indacamp for duck season. :thumbsup:

I've beern plucking the geese I shoot locally. I love them roasted in a baking bag with some fruit cocktail for about 10 hours at 200. I have a buddy that will put the legs in a pressure cooker for a hour or so, then finish off on the grill. Fantastic. Tastes like the dark meat on a farm raised turkey. I cook most of my waterfowl with a little sweet in the recipe.

That sounds really good actually, I just don't have the patience or the desire to pluck one of them big bustards...

I hate when I hear guys say they got 20 geese and just took the breasts.If you do that, you are wasting half the bird and I find that disrespectful. There is just as much meat in the legs and wings as there is on the breast and it's just as good, it just needs to be prepared differently.

while I agree the legs and thighs are the best part of the goose, its none of my (or anyone else's) business whether the guy next door plucks the bird, eats the whole thing including entrails and makes pillows from the down or throws the whole damned thing away without using a thing.

O.K.; Soup is done...and I think I out did myself this time. Either that or I have been looking forward to this soup for WAY TOO LONG! :lol3:
6 sticks of butter and 3 large heads of cauliflower course chopped indapot...
Image
along with some onion and celery...
Image
with a little bell pepper and 3/4 cup of fresh minced garlic...(I'll tell ya a trick about the garlic in the next post...
Image
Now we're cookin!! stewed the veggies down for 40 minutes...recipe only calls for 25 but with such a large volume, it took a while to get going...
Image
After the cauliflower has mellowed and sauteed...break out da boat motor and smooth it out!
Image
after the boat motor, add the flour and whisk in good. the boat motor is detachable and I have a whisk attachment that works great for this. then slowly add the duck stock one ladle at a time...look at dat rich duck stock!!
Image
once all the stock is incorporated, I added 3 pints of heavy whipping cream and 3/8 cup of brandy...(and sipped a little brandy while finishing da soup.. :yes: )
Image
Image
stir in and bring to a boil slowly so the roux and cream do not burn...then simmer for 30 minutes
Image

Add the green onions & parsley then stir in good. check seasoning and adjust with dis n dat poultry , salt and black pepper..then add da duck meat...
Image
stir in and let come to temp, check seasonings and it's done!!

I minced 1.5 cups of garlic in about 10 minutes...it's not hard when you know how. break the garlic cloves off the pod and put them in a large stainless steel bowl. should take you about a minute to bust up 5-6 pods. cover with an identical or slightly smaller stainless steel bowl and shake the dickens out of it for about 30 seconds (cause it's a lot of garlic!). open the top and voila-fresh peeled garlic cloves!!
rinse the peelings off and put the cloves in a food processor to mince. that should take up the rest of the time... :thumbsup:

after letting the pot cool, I portioned out 12 quarts of soup. :thumbsup: I will save 6-8 quarts for the Indacamp, and eat/give away the rest this week.

Thanks Inda. It's 4:45 in the morning, and after looking at this my protein bar just won't cut it for breakfast... :no: I knew better than to open this when I'm hungry.

Agreed, none of my business, but in my opinion, still disrespectful to the game that I love so much. You know what they say about opinions,just like @*******, everybody has one, and most of them stink.
