- My mom used to make this with prunes & raisins instead of cranberries. Sometimes, I additionally add raisins & chopped dried apricots. To make it vegetarian, use vegetable broth. You can use different herbs in place of the sage: poultry seasoning, thyme, parsley, marjoram, etc. This can also be used to stuff a turkey. For traditional sage stuffing, omit the fruit.
