    Does anyone know if Lidl/Aldi are stocking goose yet?

    Not the last time I looked.
     
  4. From the 17th i believe. £19.99. Are they any good?
     
  5. Sorry, that's at lidl.
     
  6. They are in Germany, because we all eat goose on Nov. 11th.
    I don't think I could really send you one in the post though [​IMG]
    20 quid in the UK - you are kidding? That is bleddy expensive.

    I saw one in Sainsbury's the other week - <u>REDUCED</u> to &pound;45!

    I pay around a tenner here, if I want "happy goose", maybe 12 to 15 quid, but that would be for a blinkin huge goose!

    We tried a Lidl's goose a few years ago...very disappointing. Dry and no real flavour.
    I would love a Riverford goose - but they are just a little out of my price-range..a 4.5 - 5.5 kg one costs &pound;78.95!
    A really good goose tastes just wonderful!
     
  10. I have never bought one there - do they have Flugente? Because they are very dry. Sorry folks, I have no idea what you call a Flugente in English!
    I ordered a duck at the butcher's one year and having no idea about duck (as we never had it in England) I was persuaded by Mr. Metzger to buy a Flugente. Eeeeeeeeew, never again!

    That is a shame.
    I have had several from both Lidl and Aldi - they have never been anything other than fabulous, which is why I want one again this year.
     
  12. The Lidl goose weighs around 4kgs which seems reasonable for &pound;20 although it is frozen (I saw fresh goose for &pound;70 in Sainsbury last year)
    I'm tempted to get one now - maybe have it for Hogmanay.

     
  13. I always buy mine at Aldi - although last year I bought at Netto and it was a lovely duck. I don't know what Netto is like in the UK.

    Flugente......Muscovy Duck? Some sort of wild duck anyway!
    I like duck, but get it from my butcher.

    Wild duck just needs cooking differently, since it has less fat. The same goes for wild goose. We had a wonderful wild goose one Christmas. The only drawback was that we didn't end up with jars of lovely fat.
    We did cook Barbary duck once, and it was a bit of a disappointment. It just wasn't very tasty.

    It's not just the fat, it's because they fly and use the muscles which makes the meat much tougher. Wild duck or goose is rarely good roasted, needs long slow cooking in a casserole.
     
  17. I know. I prefer any wild meat to factory meat.
    But I don't like stringy duck or goose.

    I bought a goos in Lidl today and the publicity material suggests they will be in Aldi from Wednesday onwards.

    I shall get one from Aldi but not for Christmas. Might keep it for a nice dinner party in the new year!
    H.....we need to meet up. Soon!
