  1. this sounds so very delicious, the stuffing is perfect. are the oats pre-cooked? what kind of maple syrup do you use? i love the use of currants, so much more wonderful than raisins...
    thanks for this blog - i will follow devoutly,

  2. I use grade B maple. Oats are not precooked. I also like currants but sometimes prepare this with dried cranberries.
