It seems only natural to combine our savory stuffing with apples to produce a new flavor. Our beautiful Annapolis Valley is famous for apples. In the fall, as we are working on harvesting and drying savory, our neighbors are busily picking apples all around us. The cool nights produce rosy red apples and makes them work harder as they fear the coming winter will damage the crop. Traditionally, the abundant apple crop is put to use as an ingredient in many foods including stuffings, pies, breads, and sausages. The combination of the two flavors produces a stuffing mix that tastes great with chicken, turkey, and pork. Gluten free when made with our potato recipe!
