This red molded salad has a sweet cinnamon flavor highlighted by fresh apples and oranges. A beautiful and refreshing compliment to ham. I usually make this in a lovely crystal bowl instead of the mold, to show off it's gorgeous color.
In medium pan, bring red hots, sugar, and 2 cups water to a boil. Stir occasionally til melted. Put gelatin in large bowl. Pour boiling mixture over gelatin and stir to dissolve. Stir in 1/12 cups cold water. Chill til partially set. Stir in apple, orange and nuts. Pour into a 6 cups mold. Refrigerate until firm.. May be refrigerated covered with plastic wrap for 2 days. Before serving, go around edge of mold with sharp knife. Dip in warm water several times and invert onto serving plate. Serves 12 to 14
