When I was young, my grandmother would make this delicious Apricot stuffing. It was always on Thanksgiving when she made it! The kids (Including me!)loved it and would try to get snitches while she was making it. We would get scolded and told to wait because it wasn't baked yet! So we had to wait---and that's how learned patience????????????????????????
