Recipe by: Midwest Living, December 1994 Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Spread the bread cubes in a 15 x 10 x 2-inch baking pan. Bake for 10 to 15
minutes, or until dried, stirring twice. Or let stand, loosely covered, at
room temperature for 8 to 12 hours. In a large saucepan, cook the onion and
celery in the butter for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove from the
heat. Stir in the apples, walnuts, raisins, salt, ginger, cinnamon and
sage. Place the dry bread cubes in a very large bowl. Add the fruit
mixture. Drizzle with the apple cider and enough broth to moisten, tossing
lightly. Use less broth for stuffing inside the bird and more if the
stuffing is to be baked in a casserole.
