"I make one similar to this but with pecans and sugar free black cherry jello. I use only about 1/3 cup of sugar and no oranges or celery, but maybe I'll switch it up this year and see how it goes. I think I would also try using Splenda and cut back on the sugar (or eliminate it) even more. This sounds good I will try it but use sugar free substitutions (or reduce sugar) to make it more diabetic friendly."

"I made this for Thanksgiving and got lots of compliments. I only put in half the sugar and it tasted sweet enough."
