  • Summary

    I originally designed this recipe for wild snow geese, and because many of California's snow geese spend their summers on Wrangel Island, near Siberia, it seemed fitting to give the stew a Russian feel. But of course the legs of any goose or duck, wild or domesticated, will work here. It's important to remove the meat from the bones before you serve this stew, otherwise everyone will be picking through their bowls for small, sharp objects. It takes only a few minutes, and your family and friends will thank you for it. This stew keeps well in the fridge for a week, though the grain in it will continue to swell over time, absorbing moisture and making this more like a French potage. It also freezes well.

    Ingredients

    • 8 goose legs (2 to 3 pounds)
    • 3 tablespoons duck fat, lard, or unsalted butter
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 large yellow or white onion, sliced
    • 1 pound small mushrooms (such as yellow foot chanterelle or beech), halved or left whole
    • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
    • 7 cups Basic Duck Stock or beef stock
    • 1 cup pearled barley
    • 1 cup peeled and sliced carrots
    • 1 celery root, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
    • 4 to 6 tablespoons sour cream
