They never gave the recipe on how to make the cornbread!

I am planning to make this for Thanksgiving and most likely using cranberries because that is what I have. I can only guess that the reviewer that did not like it did not add enough stock or seasoning- I am leaving my cornbread out over night to get a little stale to absorb the stock and flavors better. I will report back.

My family loved this recipe at Thanksgiving and requested it again for our Christmas dinner. I followed the recipe and used cherries. It was moist, delicious, and a nice change from traditional dressing. It is now a family favorite!

I made this dish for Thanksgiving and followed the recipe exactly (except I used dried cranberries instead of dried cherries, as the chef mentioned on the episode which featured this dish). I'm sorry to report that it tasted very mediocre. No one in my family liked it and we ended up throwing almost all of it out. The texture was dense and the flavor was very blah and a little off.
