Goose Fat

Where can I get rendered goose fat in Austin?

  1. You can get rendered duck fat at Central Market, I don't think they carry goose fat. You can also render it yourself, it's not too much work.

    1. You might try the guy at the downtown Farmers Market that sells fresh goose-

        Thanks, Barleybob. I wish I'd gone yesterday. I could be rendering it right now! Sometimes I just want to cook with the fat without having to buy, cook and eat a whole goose. It times past, it seems as if I used up about 1/2 of a goose's goosefat just frying potatoes to go alongside....maybe I haven't done a good job of rendering in the past.

          How low of a flame do you have the goose rendering on? I feel like you should get more fat out of the goose considering how much more fatty than duck it is...
