Roast Goose with Orange Stuffing & Cumberland Sauce

12 pound goose
Orange stuffing
Celery leaves
3 oranges

Preheat oven to 325F. Rinse the goose inside and out wtih cold
water and dry thoroughly. Cut away any large fat layers remaining
in the body cavity and remove any stray pinfeathers. Fasten neck
skin to back with skewer. Spoon the orange stuffing into the body
cavity, packing it lightly. Truss the goose and place it on a rack
in a shallow roasting pan. Roast three to three and a half hours
(allow 16 minutes per pound) or until drumstick meat feels soft to
the touch and the joint moves easily. As the goose roasts, spoon
off fat as it accumulates. Don't do anything else to the bird.
Don't prick it, don't baste it, but don't overcook it.

Garnish the platter with strips of orange peel; cut long strips of
peel from three oranges, using a vegetable peeler or sharp knife.
Arrange the orange strips in coils around the goose. Tuck celery
leaves in between the coils.
