Full Answer

To make chestnut stuffing, roast 1 pound fresh chestnuts or use 7 ounces bottled chestnuts, and chop them into coarse pieces. Combine the chestnuts and 4 cups diced cornbread in a bowl. Spread 8 cups freshly torn breadcrumbs onto a baking sheet, and bake them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Add the breadcrumbs to the chestnut mixture as well.

Cook 2 chopped celery ribs, 1 chopped yellow onion and 1 chopped turkey liver in 1 cup unsalted butter. Once the vegetables soften, add them to the chestnut mixture along with 1 cup chicken stock, 1/2 cup parsley, 1/4 cup sage leaves, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Work in 2 lightly beaten eggs, and spoon the mixture into a baking dish. Bake the stuffing at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes covered, remove the lid, and bake for another 30 minutes.

Combine 2 finely minced onions, 2 ounces fresh breadcrumbs and 7 ounces crushed and crumble chestnuts in a bowl. Add 2 1/4 pounds diced pork shoulder, 1 bunch fresh sage leaves, 3 slices chopped smoked bacon, and pepper and salt to taste in a food processor, and blend until the ingredients are roughly chopped. Season the mixture with 1 grated whole nutmeg and the zest from 1 lemon and 1 orange, and add it to the chestnut mixture. Mix everything well by hand, and bake it in a baking dish for 50 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
