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????????????????????????

How to Make Apricot Stuffing from my German-Russian Grandmothe


  1. In a medium sized sauce pan, melt butter slowly.
  2. Add can of Organic Chicken broth (I like "Pacific" brand )to the butter. Mix togethxer with whip
  3. Cut up all apricots into 1/2" pieces .
  4. Put all Apricot pieces in butter/Chicken broth. Stir together.
  5. Let Apricots simmer in butter/Chicken Broth for 1 hour.
    Put lid on but not tight.
  6. After Apricots have simmered for an hour, pour them into a LARGE mixing bowl.
  7. Add bread cubes ( these may be dried or can be freshly homemade). A help is to add them 2 cups at a time and stir after each addition.
  8. Add salt & pepper to your own taste, My Grandmother used very little of each!
  9. Turn oven on to 350°
  10. In a Large baking casserole dish,
    spray "PAM" on bottom and sides of the inside casserole dish.
  11. Pour stuffing into casserole dish.
    Place in center of pre-heated oven.
  12. Bake for 1 hour,until brown and crunchy on top.
    Enjoy hot with Thanksgiving Feast-and, REMEMBER, EVERY DAY IS A THANKSGIVING DAY AS LONG AS WE ARE IN THE USA!!!!!!!
