Grew up eating this every holiday as my grandma would make it. It's not your typical canned cranberry junk

 


Ingredients:


3 ounces of cherry-flavored gelatin

1 cup boiling water

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 cup each of finely chopped cranberries and orange

1/2 cup diced pecans

8 ounces of drained, crushed pineapple (reserve the juice)

1/2 cup liquid (combined reserved pineapple juice and water)

Instructions:


Start by boiling a cup of water.

In a large pan, dissolve the gelatin in the hot water, ensuring a smooth blend.

Mix in the sugar, lemon juice, and pineapple juice with the gelatin, stirring until fully integrated.

Fold in the chopped cranberries, orange, pecans, and pineapple gently.

Tip: For added convenience, use pre-chopped pecans. Blend or process cranberries and a partly peeled, deseeded orange for extra flavor.

Let the salad set by refrigerating it overnight.
