Ripieno per il Tacchino
Turkey Stuffing with Apple and Cashew Nuts
I created this stuffing for a special Christmas dinner served at the Gentlemen's Club of Palermo when I was just 17. Back then I made it with pistachios and chestnuts, as pistachios are very common in Sicilian cooking. Suggestion for Presentation: Stuff a breast with the mixture and then slice and fan the pieces out so that the colorful stuffing is displayed.
1 lb. Plain Croutons or Stuffing Mix
2 Tbls. Dried Sage
6 oz. Dried Cranberries
2 oz. Cashew Nuts
1/2 cup Apple Juice
1 Green Apple
1 Whole Onion
3 oz Butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
Use pistachios, chetnuts or other nuts, in addition to or as a substitution for cashews.
Dried Apricots and other dried fruits can also be a flavorful addition.
