"i followed the directions precisely, and it turned out bad. the jello was not firm at all, and it was just a mess. i think the pineapple should be drained. maybe too many juices with the cran sauce and pineapple. looking for a better recipe elsewhere. no thanks to this one."

"I have made this recipe for many years. For a buffet table it can be made in individual muffin cups. Unmolded and served on a lettuce lined tray, topped with combined cool whip & mayo, it makes an attractive addition to any table."
