Our Favourite Holiday Recipes

Ambrosia Apple and Sausage StuffingIn this special holiday blog, we have put together some of our favourite recipes that could be included in your holiday meal plans.

This Fall, we experimented with cranberries, and created a delicious Cranberry Sauce with Ambrosia Apples. 

Our Braised Red Cabbage with Ambrosia Apples would be welcome at any holiday feast, and 

Our Ambrosia Apple Challah Bread will make a perfect addition to any Hanukkah feast.

Also, we thought we’d share this recipe for a delicious twist on an old holiday favourite:

Ambrosia Apple and Sausage Stuffing

  • 6-8 C unseasoned bread cubes (make your own with dry bread, or buy them premade)
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C chopped onion
  • 1 C chopped celery
  • 1 C chopped Ambrosia apples (no need to peel)
  • 1 lb. pork sausage meat
  • 2 C chicken broth
  • 1 T fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 T fresh chopped sage
  • 1/4 C fresh chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a large sauté pan, melt the butter. Add the onions and celery and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent (5-10 minutes). In the same pan, brown the sausage, crumbling to ensure there are no big chunks.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked vegetables, Ambrosia apples, herbs, salt, pepper and bread cubes. Add the sausage mixture and the chicken broth and mix until the bread is soft and moistened.

Transfer the stuffing to the buttered baking dish and bake for 1 – 1 ½ hours, uncovered, until deeply golden and crisp on top. (NOTE: If you prefer to stuff into a turkey, make the stuffing a little dryer, as it can get mushy. Decrease the chicken broth to 1 ½ C and add the full 8C of bread crumbs.)
