Apple-Prune Dressing
October, 2004

Serves 8 / This delectable side dish is a version of my Danish grandmother’s recipe; it goes well with roasted duck, pork, and turkey. Use scissors to cut the sticky prunes.

1-1/2 cups boiling water

1/4 cup unsalted butter

6 cups whole-wheat raisin bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

2 cups pitted prunes, quartered

4 cups peeled and chopped Braeburn or Fuji apples

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. In a small bowl, slowly pour boiling water over butter; stir until butter melts.

2. Place remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour water and butter over bread mixture and toss gently.

3. Transfer to a 10x14-inch baking dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. To reheat, pour 1/4 cup hot water over top, cover, and reheat at 350°F for 20 minutes.
