Flavorful Cranberry Gelatin Mold Recipe

Flavorful Cranberry Gelatin Mold Recipe

A little port or Merlot wine offers a tasty twist to this traditional gelatin that also features pineapple and walnuts. I make it for holiday dinners, especially when turkey or ham is served. —Jenice Gibson of Oregon City, Oregon
