Cranberry Jello Salad

A wonderfully tasty Cranberry Jello Salad recipe I found in my card file given to me by my old friend, Dee L. , in Nevada City, CA. How is it Jello always sneaks back around the holidays – and I never use otherwise?

2 small packages cherry (or raspberry) jello dissolved in 2 cups boiling water.
Grind 1 orange  with 1/4 of the rind, 4 apples, 1 qt cranberries
Add 1 cup sugar (or fructose) and 1 cup crushed pineapple.

My more detailed list and directions after trying the above recipe:

  • 1 lb fresh cranberries, chopped
  • 3 cups oranges, chopped
  • 2- 3 oz Raspberry Jello
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 16 oz can crushed pineapple

Mix Jello, sugar, 1-1/2 cups boiling water. Cool slightly – until slightly gelled. Fold in the rest of the ingredients.
