Tenderize the goose breast:

  1. Butterfly the goose breasts and place into a zip-lock bag.

  1. Place the apricots, figs and white wine into a stainless steel bowl.

  2. Let the apricots and figs plump up in the wine for at least 4 hours at room temperature.

  3. Remove the fruit from the white wine; being sure to reserve the wine.

Prepare the goose breast:

  1. Remove the goose breasts from the zip-lock bag and allow to come to room temperature.

  2. Using a paper towel, pat dry the goose breasts on all sides.

  3. Using a meat mallet or the back of a sauté, pound out the goose breast until they are about 1/3 inch thick.

  6. Place three figs onto each goose breast, then place one apricot on top of each fig.

  7. Fold the goose breasts over on to enclose the figs & apricots.  Pin with toothpicks to keep closed if needed.
