Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 Teaspoons onion powder
  • 6 Cups chicken broth
  • 4 Cups dried white bread 1/2-inch cubes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 Cups walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Directions

In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt the butter and sauté the onions and celery until soft, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and then add the dried seasonings. Add 4 cups of the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from the heat and add the dried bread cubes. Give a good stir so that the chicken broth is evenly combined. If the stuffing is too dry, add the rest of the stock in ½-cup increments until wet. Stir in the apples and walnuts and then place the stuffing into a 9-by-1-inch greased baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, covered. Remove the cover and bake for 5 minutes more until golden brown.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
