Apricot Walnut Stuffing


This savory stuffing starts like most: with apple, celery, and onion sauteed in butter and seasoned with sage and thyme. But it also has a hint of tart sweetness from small bits of dried apricot, and walnuts add texture as well as healthy fat. I used sprouted whole grain bread but if you prefer a whole grain stuffing or a gluten-free version you could substitute brown and/or wild rice.

Savory Seasoning Salt


This seasoning salt makes me think of a walk in the woods. Rosemary gives it a pine-like aroma, dried lobster mushrooms add some earthiness, and a bit of ghost pepper adds a mysterious heat so small that later you'll wonder if it was really ever there.
