This is taken from a recipe for Persian chicken stuffed with dried fruits. The quantity given will stuff a 5 kg (10 lb) turkey fore and aft, as you do not want to cram the bird to bursting. Double or treble the recipe as needed. It is also very good with goose.
2onions, finely chopped
500g (1lb) prunes, soaked, stoned and chopped
500g (1lb) dried apricots, soaked and chopped
120g (4oz, ⅔cup) seedless raisins
120g (4oz, 1cup) broken walnuts
4apples, peeled, cored and chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sauté the onion in the butter until soft and golden. Add the chopped fruits, raisins and nuts and cook gently until they plump up. Season with salt, pepper and cinnamon, being certain to taste.
