VERY good! I had to do without the sage, as I was already assembling the stuffing when I realized I didn't have any, so I may have to make this again sometime when I *do* have sage. But, even so, this had great flavor and texture. I love both apricots and wild rice anyway, so I wasn't surprised that I enjoyed this so much. :) The recipe didn't specify when to add the thyme, sage and parsley, so I added them at the same time I added the onion, etc., and it seemed to work out just fine.
