This stuffing has a wonderful texture with the two types of rice and the cherries add a terrific tart flavor. However, I found a lack of flavor when I made the recipe directly from the ingredients listed. I added some poultry seasoning and that helped. I will make it again!

Easy, versatile recipe that turns out very creamy, without all the salt and extra calories of store bought rice packages. I used dried cranberries instead of dried cherries, and it turned out great. Cooking times were right on!

I made this for Christmas dinner. It was really really good. I halved the recipe and used short grain brown rice. I'm not sure that long grain rice would have finished in the cooking time listed. My husband commented on how flavorful it was. Overall it wasn't a lot of work to make so I would make it again when we need a rice dish.

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner today (instead of stuffing). Huge hit. Everyone asked for leftovers to take home. Easy enough to make for a quick dinner party; great mix of flavors.

Made this for Christmas with roast pork, cooked pickled red cabbage (Danish style), mashed potatoes, and brussel sprouts. I was a bit skeptical about making this dish since most of the fruit-containing stuffings I have had in the past have been overly sweet, but it turned out great and the flavors really complimented the pork without being too sweet. This recipe made a LOT! We had 8 for dinner and even though everyone really liked it (most took seconds or even thirds), we had plenty left over. No matter, though, since the left-overs were just as good days later.

We made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. My non-stuffing liking sister wasn't making stuffing, so I suggested we try this -- she loved it and has requested that I make it again for Christmas. My local store didn't have wild rice, so I used Rice Select Royal Blend as a substitute for both kinds of rice. It has a combination of texmati white, brown, wild & red rice.

Had to make this in an emergency yesterday when our college-aged guests failed to show up with the promised stuffing Thanksgiving morning. Rattling their cage found them still asleep at 11 am, and a bird due in the oven. Found this online and soon was back in business. This stuffing is simply delicious. Had to improvise on ingredients with what was in the pantry so no Sage, and used Craisins, Raisins, and fresh apple for the fruit. Also used just 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and tossed in a bouillon cube to compensate. It was so tasty! People raved about it, even the derelict kids. I believe the original to be also wonderful, and am just saying this recipe has latitude and is easy to make.
