Cranberry Jello

Marsha Gardner


At our house it wouldn't be Christmas dinner without "Cranberry Jello". I still serve the canned Jelly type and I make a fresh cranberry salad, but if this would be left off the menu there would be a mutiny. So easy, so good and in our house, so Christmas.

1 large
can crushed pineapple, packed in juice, drained
1 can(s)
whole cranberry sauce
2 small
packages gelatin, raspberry, cran-raspberry, whatever your family likes
2 c
boiling water


1Drain pineapple; set aside.
2Mix gelatin with 2 cups boiling water until gelatin is dissolved. Add drained crushed pineapple and whole cranberry sauce.
3I kind of squish the cranberry sauce with my hand to break it up. Mix well.
4Pour into gelatin mold. Let set until firm. Unmold onto a lettuce lined plate and serve. I usually make my gelatin a couple of days ahead, just to make things easier for me on the big day.
