Stuffing of Jerusalem Artichokes, Currants, and Grapes


1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1 pound Jerusalem artichokes, scrubbed and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1/2 cup dried currants
2 teaspoons Bell's seasoning
1 14-ounce package prepared herbed stuffing cubes (we used Pepperidge Farm brand)
2-1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2cup halved red seedless grapes
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon ground black pepper


In a large nonstick skillet (do not use iron, which discolors the Jerusalem artichokes), saute onion and celery in the butter until onion is transparent. Add Jerusalem artichokes, currants, and Bell’s seasoning; cook 5 minutes longer. Add stuffing cubes, chicken broth, grapes, parsley, and black pepper; toss gently to mix. At this point you can refrigerate the mix up to 24 hours.

Loosely stuff prepared turkey according to the directions on your bird. Put rest of stuffing in a covered buttered casserole dish and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Stuffing should reach 165 degrees F before serving.


about 12 cups stuffing, enough for a 12- to 14-pound turkey
