All this talk of stuffing/dressing is quite interesting, especially as only yesterday I watched a 'Christmas' program that showed one of our well known Aussie Chefs Maggie Beer cooking a turkey and making the most amazing stuffing using a combo of dried apples (reconstituted) verjuice, onion, prunes, chicken livers, butter, olive oil, flat leaf parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, fresh white breadcrumbs, sea salt and ground black pepper. After making up this lovely moist stuffing and putting it inside the turkey, she then placed a large apple in after the stuffing to hold it all in place.
I will definitely be giving this recipe a go, although as it so hot at Christmas here in Australia, we usually have a barbecue along with loads of seafood, prawns, oysters, scallops etc etc. Who wants to be sweating away in the kitchen when it's over 40c (100F+)
P.S. I have been introduced to the lovely American tradition of Thanksgiving by my lovely american daughter in law who comes from North Carolina. We now get to celebrate Thanksgiving each year here as it is such a special occasion for my daughter in law.
