Apple, Cranberry and Pine Nut Stuffing

Ingredients:

One 1-pound loaf artisan-style bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
1 stick butter, plus 1 tablespoon for the top
2 3-ounce packages of Frieda’s Shallots, thinly sliced
3 celery stalks, thinly sliced
2 medium Granny Smith apples, diced with skins on
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped Fresh Rosemary or 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1 tablespoon finely chopped Fresh Sage or 1 tablespoon dried sage
2 cups chicken broth
1 3-ounce package Frieda’s Dried Cranberries
1 ounce Frieda’s Pine Nuts (about 1/3 of 3-ounce package), lightly toasted

Steps:

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Melt the stick of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and celery, and cook for 6 to 7 minutes, or until tender. Add apples and cook 5 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pepper, parsley, rosemary, sage, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Stir in the cranberries, pine nuts, and toasted bread, stirring until the bread absorbs the liquid. Transfer to a well buttered 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Dot the top of the stuffing with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes or until heated through and golden brown and crisp on top.
