Appalachia: Thanksgiving Recipe for Cranberry Salad

Hurry to the grocery before all the cranberries are sold out! You need to pick up some bags of cranberries so you can make this delicious Cranberry Salad for your Thanksgiving dinner. This was my mother’s recipe. It’s delicious and she always made it for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter:

Prepare Cranberry/Orange Relish:

12 oz whole cranberries (frozen)

1 orange including rind

Put the cranberries and orange in a food processor. Chop them up to relish consistency. Add 1/2 cup of sugar or equal amount of artificial sweetener. Stir.

Melt cherry jello (large box) in 1 cup hot water. Use 8X8 or 9X9 pyrex or glass dish. Cool on countertop. Don’t let it set up completely. Add relish (above). Add 1 small can crushed pineapple plus juice and 1/2 cup cold water. Add 1/2 cup chopped celery. 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts are optional. Stir everything together.

Refrigerate until it gels. Serve cold. This recipe is easily doubled.

Enjoy! #recipes
