My mom always used a raspberry jello, but I will try plain jelatin bc of the sugar ans food coloring. Thanks

I have made this for years. I have never put walnuts in it. Walnuts is not a nut that I will eat.

I think my family would have liked this better without the walnuts.

This is a wonderful recipe. I too, like my Mom did, add an apple along with the orange. Can add nuts or not.

I use one orange seeded, one apple seeded, neither peeled and a package of washed and sorted cranberries. I run these through a grinder and add 1/2 to 3/4 c. of sugar. My Mother made it this way and this is how I've always prepared it for family dinners at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's better when you make it a full day in advance of when you plan to serve it. Good with turkey or ham.

I prepared this recipe for the first time 10/25/14. The only difference is that I purposely used 1/4 cup chopped pecans (OR walnuts). I've learned that not everyone is keen on nuts, plus sometimes there are allergies to nuts. I then prepared 2 packages of raspberry gelatin(3-oz.) and 2 packages of cherry gelatin (3-oz.) EACH, using 1-1/2 cups EACH boiling water to dissolve the gelatin. I prepared them each separately, adding 1-1/4 cup undrained crushed pineapple in its own juice to the 2 different flavors and 1-1/2 cup EACH of the "Cranberry Stuff" to the gelatin mixture(s) which I poured into two separate jello molds, oiled. I thought that this would be a creative way to use this recipe as I was asked to prepare cranberry jello salad for a luncheon at our chapel! Thank you for this recipe, Catherine Cassidy! delowenstein

The difference between this and my Mother-in Law's Cranberry Relish is the addition of the walnuts and she ran the cranberry's through a grinder. The nuts make a welcome addition.
