"Made this last night. I was worried about the glaze but it turned out really nice; sticky and yummy. I did omit the cloves from the glaze. Added just a little chopped onion and celery to the stuffing as another reviewer suggested. Had to add extra water to the stuffing as it was too dry. I will definitely make this again!"

"YUM!!!!! So pretty and they taste as good as they look. The only changes I made was to add some finely chopped onions and celery to the stuffing mix with a pinch of marjoram and sage. Not a lot. The apricot glaze is delectable. These would make a lovely anniversary dinner meal."
