How to Cook Haskapa Rice Stuffing for Poultry - cookingwithkimberly.comThough I usually use one of my favorite bread stuffings when I cook poultry, I created this delicious rice stuffing with haskap recipe for turkey, chicken, duck or goose dressing, and I believe you will enjoy it too.

A small amount of bread goes into this stuffing, but rice is the main ingredient, dotted with savory vegetables & dried haskap berries

This can be a great side dish for the Holidays that might well become part of your traditional Holiday recipe collection.

Haskapa Rice Stuffing for Poultry:

This Haskapa Rice Stuffing is going into my 4 kg turkey in this show, and I am happy to share my recipe with you.

I used some dried haskap berries that come from Haskapa out of Nova Scotia. The haskap plant originated in Russia and is now grown throughout the Canadian provinces and most of the USA states. Check out Haskapa:

haskap berries - haskapa.comThe haskap berry, is the same frosty, purplish-blue as a blueberry in color, but it looks like a misshapen, large, elongated blueberry on the outside, with deep crimson flesh on the inside.

The berry is a bit sweet with a tangy flavor and it is ideal for juice, jam, chutney, drying like the dried berries I am using in this recipe, and it lends itself nicely to various recipes. I have used it in many sweet dessert recipes, in savory recipes, and for cocktails, to name a few of the uses.

How to Cook Haskap Apple Bred Stuffing - cookingwithkimberly.comI find that often, there isn’t enough stuffing to suit me, so I double the recipe, and after stuffing the bird, I place the rest of the dressing into a buttered casserole dish, add some stock, and cook it in the oven. Then, when I remove the dressing from the turkey, I mix that dressing with the dressing in the casserole, and there is plenty of tasty, moist dressing for second and third helpings, as well as snacks.

I had some roasted pumpkin on hand and so I added it to my recipe, but it is not entirely necessary to add pumpkin to have a successful recipe result.
