melissa's notes for this recipe:
One of my favorites during the Holidays. Great way to incorporate cranberries during traditional Thanksgiving. But good anytime of the year too if you can find fresh cranberries.

It's also a very pretty salad and looks great on the table. Even the kids will like it.

Directions

1
Using food chopper or processor; grind rinsed cranberries with granulated sugar until well incorporated. Place in serving bowel and fold in pineapple, apples, and marshmellows. Cover and refridgerate overnight.
2
Before serving, whip heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. (Powdered sugar can be ommited here, but since cranberries are naturally tart, this adds a little extra sweetness to the salad)
For best results, use cold beaters and mixing bowel.(I place my beaters and bowel in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes.) This keeps my cream from warming up during the mixing process. The colder the cream, the thicker it gets!
3
Add pecans (opt) to cranberry mixture. Fold in whipped cream and serve.
