I like a brined bird for the juiciness but I REALLY don't like the  
Let us know how the apple brine turns out.
We always called it dressing even when it was stuffed. It dressed the  
bird, I guess. It seemed that our American friends always called it  
stuffing and home in Canada we called it dressing. Never had  
cornbread stuffing until moving to the states.



Food is life. May the plenty that graces your table truly be a VAST
