Apparently I have done something wrong as I ended up with cranberries in the colander but no juice. I am assuming that it is only the juice that is mixed with the rest of the ingredients. Have I cooked the berries too long?

Mindy you'll want to use a wooden spoon or spatula to press as much pulp out of the berries as you can, then discard what's left in the strainer.

What do you do with the Cranberries? I will have to use a colander.

I have not made this recipe, but I grew up with this delicious Thanksgiving "salad" because my aunt made it every year! I have her recipe so I know it's the same one! Don't change a thing as it's perfect as it is. To corkyy11, you might want to try a colander. That's what I use & it works fine.
