Grandma's Cranberry Salad is a must-make holiday side dish! Sweet and tart, this Jell-O cranberry salad is a Thanksgiving tradition the whole family loves.
|Hot water||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Lemon juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Drained crushed pineapple||8 Ounce|
|Pineapple juice||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Ground cranberries||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Pecans||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
1. Boil the cup of water. Dissolve the Jell-o in the hot water in an 8-inch square pan mix well. Add the sugar, lemon juice, and pineapple juice. Stir to dissolve well.
Note: You can substitute the 8x8 dish and use a 9x13 dish, it seems to gel up a bit better that way.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix. Chill overnight.
3. Grandma's Notes: Chop up the pecans first before getting the blender wet. Or you could just buy pre-chopped pecans and save a step. Use the blender or food processor to chop up cranberries, then orange, seeded, and partially peeled. The chopped peel gives it that special zing!
4. Serve and Enjoy!
