Despite what people say, snow goose is edible and tasty—if you cook it correctly. Big adult birds can be upwards of 15 to 20 years old, and they are challenging to deal with. Juvenile birds, however, are downright delicious. For the older snow geese, I’d recommend grinding them into sausage, making jerky or a long, slow braise to break down the tough meat. Juvies can be cooked like a steak, used in poppers (the ones in the photo were amazing, especially with a little homemade pepper jelly on top) or in a number of other recipes. If you’re lucky enough to stack up a pile of white this spring, here are five recipes for cooking them.
