If you can’t find dried apples for the stuffing, dried plums or cherries are good substitutes.

This recipe might be good, I have no idea yet. After following the instructions I just took out two hens, the tops of which were nicely cooked (maybe even a little over-done since the glaze scorched.
Sadly when I split one of the birds to serve it up it was barely cooked at the bottom. Despite having the oven at a consistent 425 and the thermometer reading 173 in the breast of the bird.
Stuffing was cool to the touch at the bottom of the bird.
The water in the bottom of the pan obviously acted as a steam bath and kept the lower part of the bird at 212 or thereabouts.
What a disaster... Thanksgiving dinner now on hold for at least an hour while we try to recover this fiasco, and of course, all the side dishes will either be cold or dried out.
One observation, our pan is 2 inches deep... maybe that didn't help, but next time I'll deal with smokey glaze assuming there is a next time.
This recipe is awesome! The Couscous Stuffing with dried fruits is the BEST stuffing I've EVER had.THIS became a part of our yearly Thanksgiving table right after it was first published.Make sure to try the orange glaze ---- it elevates this dish to UBER delicious.
