Goose can be wild or domestic. Young geese, under 8 months old, weigh 8 to 10 pounds (3,600 to 4,500g) and are more tender than older geese. The rich specialty pâté called foie gras is made from the enlarged goose liver produced by force-feeding geese with grain. Confit is cooked goose preserved in goose fat.
