The Feast of St. Michael on September 29 has become a combined feast for the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel. This feast is also called Michaelmas.

Traditionally in Poland the Michaelmas goose is roasted with a stuffing made from apples. An appropriate stuffing for the Michaelmas or Martinmas goose is potato or apple and sausage stuffing.


Peel and cube the potatoes and parboil for about five minutes. Sauté the onion in the butter and add the potatoes, sausage meat, and parsley. Season with marjoram and pepper, and salt lightly because of the sausage meat. Apples may be substituted for the potatoes but in that case omit the marjoram.
