Grandma Bussey's Cranberry Salad

 1 cup cranberries 2 oranges, 3-4 apples, 2-3 stalks celery
Wash all, core apples, peel oranges, trim celery ends.

Use food chopper to chop all fruits in small pieces.
You will also need one can of crushed pineapple.

Place 2 pkg. of Raspberry jello in a bowl.

Add two cups HOT water and mix well - till jello is dissolved.

Add one cup cold water.  Using an Italian glass measuring cup is optional but does make the whole process much more enjoyable and photo worthy.  Find yours here.

You also need 3/4 cup of sugar.  I used my new china 1 cup measure and just didn't fill it all the way to the top.

Add the chopped fruits, pineapple and sugar to the jello mixture.

Stir.  Stir some more.

Pour into a beautiful bowl.  Photograph it with your Italian Glass Measure just because.
Cover Cranberry Salad, place in refrigerator overnight to set.  Mine always sets up!
Serve with a traditional Thanksgiving meal - you know, turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy...
To me a turkey dinner is not complete without Grandma Bussey's Cranberry Salad.  YUM.

My Grandma always had a holiday Jello salad too! Only hers had grated carrots, celery, and pineapple in orange Jello. But I might just have to try yours. Thanks. Jenni
