Walnut Raisin Stuffing

Crispy bread bits, crunchy walnuts, soft raisins, onions and celery combine to make a great stuffing from scratch.


6 cups stale white bread, cubed

1 cup raisins

1/4 cup brandy

6 Tablespoons butter

1/2 cup celery, diced

1/2 cup onion, diced


2 cups walnuts, chopped

chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


Preheat oven to 300°.
Place bread in a large mixing bowl. Soak raisins in brandy until plump.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add celery, onion and honey. Sauté until vegetables are softened. Stir in walnuts and sauté for another 4 minutes. Add raisins and brandy and cook until brandy evaporates. Toss mixture with bread cubes until well combined. Add chicken broth to stuffing, if needed, so that stuffing is slightly moist. Bake in a covered baking dish for 45 minutes.
Serves: 10.
