I made two versions of this

I made two versions of this recipe last night. The first was following the recipe as is, and the second one, I replaced the butter with goose fat. Well let me tell you, both were delicious, but I have to say my favorite was with the goose fat. As for the apples, I used Granny Smith, which held together very well, they softened nicely, but did not get mushy or fall apart.

Version Two?

Where can I get Goose Fat?

glorious goose fat

three ways

1. Roast a goose (but don't smoke it). You'll have plenty of fat. 2. You can maybe get some at Piantedosi's, especially if you ask Erik ahead of time. 3. I found some in my travels somewhere, but I don't recall where. It was a pound of it in a plain plastic deli tub. I think it was Terra Optima Market in Rockland, ME. I will keep an eye out for it, and write about it when I find it.
