Cranberry Salad Mold
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling
I'm a big fan of the simple cranberry orange relish recipe from the back of the ocean spray bag, but I also love the presentation of a jello mold so decided to try this recipe this year. It was great! My mold is only 3.5 cups so I did a half batch and it was plenty for our large gathering. I did cut the sugar down to 1 cup instead of 1.25 cups, and I added a little orange zest (0.25-0.5 t) because I like a strong orange flavor with my cranberries. Loved the crunch of the walnuts! Will definitely make this again.
The pleasantly tart taste of cranberries really comes through in this preparation--they really are the star and despite all the sugar, it is not overly sweet at all. Apples and nuts add nice crunch to the jewel-red relish. It makes a huge amount; next time I will definitely cut the recipe in half.
Will try this, but I make it simple by using one large pkg of raspberry jello. I heat water in the microwave . I dissolve the jello into the hot water. I keep a can of whole cranberries in the refrigerator and add that to the jello . I use the can to measure cold water and icecubes and let that set up.. Add chopped apples , a small can of crushed pineapple drained, and sometimes chopped celery which makes a nice mixture for a molded salad..
