Sunsweet Plum Amazins Giveaway (a $75.00 value!)

Plum AmazinsYou haven’t tried Plum Amazins yet, here’s your chance to win Sunsweet Plum Amazins in our giveaway today!

Ten Appetite for Health friends will win Plum Amazins plus the entire 2012 season of America’s Test Kitchen on DVD and its accompanying cookbook (a $75 value)! Entry details below…

If you like to cook (or know someone who does), you need to get in on our Amazing Plum Amazins giveaway, pronto! Not only are these diced, dried plums amazingly tasty, but this prize comes with a the 2012 cookbook and DVD from America’s Test Kitchen.

I like pretty much all types of dried fruit, and Sunsweet Plum Amazins are no exception. With 50% more fiber and half the sugar of raisins, they’re a nice change of pace, so if you haven’t tried them, give them a whirl.

I like eating them for a snack or sprinkling them on yogurt or oatmeal. But, dried fruit is a great ingredient in recipes either sweet or savory, and we have a recipe to prove it! This is a nice, seasonal stuffing recipe that’s taken up a notch with lots of fruit. It’s not your typical fowl filler. Check it out below (it looks pretty tasty, right)?

Country Sausage, Apple and Sunsweet Cherry Stuffing

  • 1 lb. Italian-style chicken or turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 1 1/2 yellow onions, dicedPlum Amazins Stuffing
  • 5 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Sunsweet Cherries
  • 1 cup Sunsweet Plum Amazins
  • 3/4 cup Sunsweet Prune Juice
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped fine
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 5 cups French bread, cubed and dried

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a skillet, brown the sausage, remove excess fat and add the vegetables and garlic. Cook briefly, about 2 minutes, set aside. Put the cherries and Plum Amazins in a pan with the prune juice, bring to a boil, set aside. Put the bread cubes, sausage, vegetables, apples and parsley in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper. Whisk eggs and chicken broth together and pour over the bread mixture, stirring until everything is well distributed. Drain cherries and Plum Amazins, and add to the stuffing mixture, tossing again. If the mixture is too dry, add more broth, 1/4 cup at a time. Place in a lightly greased 9×13-inch pan and cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake 10 minutes to crisp. Serve warm.
