There are many ways of stuffing a goose, but I find that this is one of the most pleasing.


2 lb. of dessert apples, 1 lb. of prunes, 6 tablespoons of castor sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter.


Peel and core the apples and cut them up in small pieces. Soak the prunes in cold water for 12 hours or more. Now put the apples, prunes, sugar and butter in a saucepan and simmer very gently for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, till the mixture is the consistency of jam and the apples are quite brown. Stuff the goose with this mixture and then roast it.
