The chatter beginning over the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday is always a fun topic to eavesdrop in on. Listening to people muse over their favorite feast flavors and maternally made dishes; food does a superb job of bringing together visceral senses and tradition. For the month of November, The Fern will feature some of these mulled-over-favorites: Stuffing, Pie, and Sides, oh my!
First up, at the center of the table, at the center of the turkey, Stuffing! We've collected some recipes that combine that classic mirepoix trio: carrots, celery and onions embellishing with some seasonal, flavorful twists while adding some different recipes for your dietarily challenged family members. Remember, Turkey orders are going fast! Plus this year we're raffling off one pre-ordered turkey for free!
THE CLASSIC: A simple stuffing with all of your favorite goodies made special with crisp fresh apples and walnuts. Try using Fabled Foods French Baguette for a fresh flavorful bread.
THE SALT LIFE: It's a perfect stuffing recipe for where we live using fresh local oysters to add a salty seafood addition to our sea-side tables. Smoky bacon and satisfying egg lend to a hearty stuffing.
THE VEGGIE LOVER: This stuffing uses the humble parsnip and earthy mushroom for a grain-free stuffing perfect to satisfy a wide range of dietary needs.
THE SWEETIE PIE: Two birds with one stone! Why make sweet potatoes as a separate side when you can incorporate them into your stuffing? Pecans add a buttery crunch while sage adds deep flavor.
THE FRUIT & FENNEL: A classic stuffing recipe with two all-star ingredients. Fresh fennel gives a light anise flavor and a delicate crunch. Apricots add sweetness and flair for a totally stellar stuffing!
