  2. In a medium glass mixing bowl, combine the raspberry gelatin and unflavored gelatin. Add 1 cup boiling water and stir with a metal spoon continuously for 2 minutes, until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  3. Stir in 1/2 cup cold water.
    Add the pineapple and the juice, cranberry sauce and walnuts.
