Goose Juice Soup
2tbl Goose Fat
10 Red Potatoes, cut into 1/8ths
1 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Pints Goose Juice
2 Pints Water
1 Bunch Italian Kale, roughly chopped
1 Bunch Red Chard, roughly chopped
Reserved Goose Meat, shredded
This rich winter warmer soup is the perfect evening meal to sip in front of the fireplace at your getaway lodge in the mountains but since you are currently shot gunning room temperature generic tomato soup out of the can in front of the radiator at the halfway house I’m probably wasting my time. Here it goes anyway.
Cook the potatoes in the goose fat for a long ass time. “This one red potato is really big! I should still follow the directions exactly and cut it into 1/8ths?” Are you fucking simple? Cut it into 1/16ths or some shit. Everything is different and nothing is ever the same. There are potential variations everywhere so at least try improvising on something as simple as how big a fucking potato should be. When the potatoes are softened, add the onion and stir until softened and fragrant.
Bust the juice into the pot and add the water. Depending on the intensity of the broth, you might want to change the amount of water. Bring it to a boil and simmer for five minutes. Add the Italian kale and simmer for ten minutes. Add the red chard and goose meat and simmer for another ten minutes. Woo your wife, wife’s younger sister, or wife’s elderly mother by serving this soup and asking, “Would you like to guzzle my goose juice?” Eat it.
