Poultry Stuffing

the amount of chicken broth need to moisten the stuffing can vary a lot depending on if the foul has been brined or not and the density of the bread. The brining process can add a lot of moisture and can make your stuffing too moist.
Sage can loose its flavor quickly with storing. The 1/4 cup in this recipe is sort of an average so add with caution and taste once in a while then adjust the amount of sage to your liking.
The fennel and anise give a Scandinavian slant and can be omitted if you not familiar with this flavoring. Other people may also want to add some caraway seed besides.
