    Hi all in my last visit to Israel i had a great breakfast . bacon and eggs. only that the bacon was smoked goose breast . Man that was good but really good .
    i started a new project i call it the goose project.
    and my first one is smoked goose breast .
    i got 3 goose breasts , made a dry rub
    9 tbsp Kosher salt
    5 tbsp sugar
    1 tbsp juniper berries Coarsely ground
    2 tbsp black pepper Coarsely ground
    2 tbsp paprika
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    1 tsp cure #1

    and put the breasts in a Container. it go's to the fridge for 4 days .
    i took the breasts out and washed them .put them in cold water and made 3 types of breast .
    1 is rolled and stuffed in a net and goes to the smoker
    1 is just stuffed in a net and goes to the smoker
    i will cold smoke it and slowly increase the temp to hot smoke till IT of 165 F .

    1 is Covered in cheese cloth and stuffed in net and goes to the fridge to Hang for 14 days (i am trying to do prosciuttina d’oca, )

    The taste was great the smoked one tasted like bacon and the dry cured one oily like prosciutto











    This is the 18 day dry one







    Thank you for watching

    The dry cured one does look mighty tasty. Were you controlling the humidity?

    Looks great,that dry cured looks really special. Goose one of birds that sort of went out of fashion here or people keep a few but don't end up eating them because they let them get to old.If they saw your cooking they might get moving earlier.

    I'm glad your post made the header, because I missed it the first go around!  Gorgeous job on your goose breasts.....I especially like how the goose breast prosciutto came out. I have made duck breast prosciutto before and I loved eating it for breakfast, especially with some sauteed greens and a fried or poached egg.  It looks like you made a lot of family members very happy!

    Great post!

    I was just talking with a friend of mine yesterday about trying to make some duck breast bacon. I'd seen it on some TV show. It didn't look nearly as good as what you posted here!! Great job!
