This is a recipe from my Great Grandmother Lila and my Grandmother Martha has been making it every Thanksgiving and Christmas since Lila passed away. It is a nice alternative to the canned cranberry sauce.
Cranberry Nut Mold
1 large box red color jello (cranberry, raspberry are the best)
2 packages fresh cranberries, washed and run through a food processor to chop up (save any juice if some left)
3/4 cup water
2 cups sugar
2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
HOW TO PREPARE:
In a saucepan, add 3/4 cup water and any juice from cranberries. Heat to a boil. Dissolve jello and 2 cups sugar. Add cranberries and just heat to warm. Add two cups of chopped nuts and pour into a jello mold or chill in a serving bowl until set, usually overnight.
