    Brentster's Note:

    My grandma's way of making turkey stuffing who is not with us anymore and I am sure would be proud that I am thinking of her still. She was part Swedish and reminded me of the actress Ruth Gordon in a way as a spirited woman full of love and back home warmth.

      I too make an Oyster stuffing, however, I add blanced almonds, do not drain the oysters, and I use Pettridge Farms Rye bread crumb mix. Your recipe is right on for the Scandenavian crowd! I made this recipe & I think fresh oysters are better.
