Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tips:
• For best results, use crisp sweet-tart red apples, such as Empire, Baldwin or Honeycrisp.
• For moister stuffing, increase chicken stock to 3 cups.
• For drier stuffing, allow bread cubes to air-dry overnight.

Optional Ingredients:
• Cook 1/2 pound crumbled sausage with the celery and onion.
• Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans when adding the apples and cranberries.
