Seasonal Cherry Stuffing

This delicious stuffing is made with our tasty organic cherries. It is low in fat and a colorful addition to any holiday meal. For a vegetarian twist, use vegetable stock.
You will need: *5 pieces of whole grain bread * 1 9 inch pan of cornbread, crumbled
* 1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil * 5 tablespoons of butter * 1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
*1/2 medium onion, finely chopped * 2 cloves of minced garlic * 1/4 tsp marjoram *1 1/2 cups broth or stock *1/2 cup organic cherries, chopped *1 tsp salt *1 tsp ground pepper *1/2 cup toasted walnuts

Season the bread with salt, pepper, and butter to taste. Break into chunks no larger than 1/2 inch and toast in oven. Set aside. Melt 3 tbsp butter in a large pot. Add garlic, celery, and onion, cooking over low heat for five minutes. Add marjoram, basil, and pepper to vegetables and stir. Add broth. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Carefully add bread crumbs, walnuts, and cherries. Let stand covered about 5 minutes before serving.

Even my mother in law liked this stuffing. And it was much healthier than the stuffing I usually make. Thanks!
