Geese and ducks are prepared, drawn, and trussed in the same way as fowls, except that the wings are cut off at the first joint. The feet of a goose are nearly always removed, but a duck's are often left on, the tips of the toes alone being cut off.
After having drawn and singed the bird, put the skewer through the under part of one wing, through the body and out through the other wing. Skewer the legs by passing the skewer through the first joint, and carrying it through the body and the other leg.
Both goose and duck have the body stuffed with sage-and-onion stuffing.
Recipes for these will be given later.
