Thanksgiving/Christmas Recipe

Day three of Blog snippet week.

Continuing in the spirit of Christmas, and Thanksgiving, I'd like to offer a seasonal recipe favorite that our family enjoys.

Cranberry Jello Salad

1 small package raspberry jello
1 small package lemon jello
1 cup boiled water

Dissolve jello packages in boiled water.

Add 1 can whole cranberry sauce (14 oz can).

Beat on low speed with mixer for 2 to 3 minutes while hot.

Let thicken in fridge approximately 1/2 hour.

Stir in 1 14oz tin crushed pineapple (undrained) and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.

Pour in mold and let set. (I do this the night before.)

Serves 12 people.

For those looking for a new Thanksgiving tradition in the food offering department, I hope this recipe works for you. I know my whole family loves it.

30 Days until we widely celebrate Jesus's Birthday on Christmas Day around the World!

Surrendering to Him,

Oh, I love love this but am making something different today.

4 cups cranberries
4 oranges, including peel!
2 apples
1 large piece ginger root
2/3 c. sugar
1 c. walnuts

Mix all, then put into food processor until coarse.

Oh, y'all, it sings of God's bounty, smells of orange blossoms and freshly grated ginger, tastes like ambrosia!!!!

Hmmm...I'm not a huge fan of cranberries. But my hubby is. He is one of the only people I know who eats them you'd eat grapes. It's WEIRD!

I know you're up in Canada, ay, but happy Thanksgiving anyway!

Hi Eileen -

I love the combination of cranberries and pineapple. I use this to make sweet and sour meatballs.

Congrats on your progress with NaNoWriMo! You're almost there. Only four days of writing 2,000 words would put you over the top!

Susan :)

Robyn Campbell said...

God bless! :)

Mmmmm, that looks so yummy. I might almost be tempted away from cranberry sauce, a favorite of mine. Thank you. ~ Just Joany
