"I never like cranberry relish until I made this. I get requests all of the time to bring this along."

"If this didn't set than you obviously didn't make it properly. I have made this over and over and it asked for very often. I ONLY use Jello brand jello for this and never had any setting issues. I HATE traditional cranberry sauce and such but I LOVE this dish!!!!!!!!!! It's a MUST try!"

"This relish was a huge disappointment. It NEVER set. Even after 3 days. Needless to say, I didn't have any cranberries ready for Thanksgiving. I think the taste would've been good if it wasn't so soupy. Also, the 3 oz. of gelatin has got to be a typo. To fix the dish, I added an additional 3 oz., re-boiled the mixture, let it set in the fridge, and gave it to my neighbor. Very disappointing recipe."
