How to Make Elsie Que's Cranberry Salad


  1. Mix cranberries and sugar. Make sure to chop cranberries up before adding sugar. DO NOT LEAVE THEM WHOLE. If left whole, they remain VERY tart (even with the sugar). Refrigerate until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Combine jello and orange juice with hot water. Pour into a cellophane lined ring mold. Refrigerate until jello STARTS to sit.
  3. Mix cranberries and nuts into mixture.
  4. Refrigerate until firm.
  5. Once firm, invert mold onto serving plate, remove the cellophane, and enjoy!
