    Annacia's Note:

    This is a great stuffing for turkey or chicken but would also go well with pork. From Christine Cushing Live. *NOTE*: time for roasting the chestnuts is not included. Have them ready when you start.

      Other than leaving out the prunes (kids won't eat them), and using red delicious apples made this as written. This was a very nice delicious stuffing. Went well with my Apple Bean Bake, and the leftovers will make for dinner tomorow. (made the full batch). Thanks for a great recipe.
