Set oven at 350 degrees. In a large pot using a little water, cook onion, celery and apple until cooked. Add cranberries, walnuts and extra herbs if using. Prepare herb-stuffing mix according to package directions and add in cooked mixture to mix well. Leave out butter and use broth instead of water if possible.
