I have made this for holiday dinners for several years. The taste is incredibly good. Everyone I serve it to loves it. Recently I have had trouble with the cranberry layer not congealing and I have forgotten if I usually omitted the sugar or possibly reduced the water in that layer. Anyone know if the 4 cups of water in this recipe is correct? It does seem a lot with sugar also causing it to be watery. I have tried all sizes of oranges and it makes no difference as the cranberry layer continues to be so liquid that we have to practically drink it. The peach and OJ layer works fine with 2 cups of water.

I haven't tried this yet, but I need a salad for a Thanksgiving Potluck. I'm thinking this would be good with the variation of using orange Jello with Mandarin Oranges, in place of the Peaches. Since you're using Oranges with the Cranberries.
