called and talked and remembered
my old cranberry salad recipe.
Found it handwritten
in my over 40 year old recipe book.
I think it came from my Aunt Lucille who passed
away 4 years ago in her 90's.
I am going to make it for Thanksgiving....
1 bag of fresh cranberries - chopped in processor
2 oranges - chopped chunky - 1 peeled and 1 unpeeled
1 small cherry jello
1 small orange jello
1 1/2 or 2 cups of sugar
2 cups of boiling water
1/2 cup chopped nuts
optional - small can of drained pineapple
dissolve jello in boiling water
add rest of ingredients
pour in well greased mold - it always looked so festive
at Thanksgiving, Christmas or really - anytime
You could put in a glass Pyrex dish....
Keeps a long time in frig and slices beautifully
~~ I just went upstairs and retrieved my old mold ~~
seems I remember this mold not quite big enough for all of the mixture
and I would put the remainder in a glass bowl :)
I may just half it this time for my old mold.
I will use one jello, one orange, not so many cranberries
just less of everything - I think - not sure yet...
and may fill the center with grapes :)
Early this morning
pumpkin bread cooling
and placed my old mold
where daughter's could see it.
