I want to throw this up in time for those of you ambitious folks who love anything cranberry to make this for Thanksgiving. I have a long list of friends who ask (er, beg) me for a container of this every year. And it's nothing like that Ocean Spray junk in a can. Buy their fresh ones, instead. (You may want to make a double batch. It has a way if disappearing fast.)
Anywhoo, here's the deal:
The Princess Mom's Cranberry Relish
In a saucepan place:
1 lb. fresh cranberries
1¼ cups water
Bring to a low boil and cook until thickened.
2 cups sugar
and cook for another 5 minutes.
1 large box cherry Jello
¾ cup chopped nuts
¾ cup chopped celery
1 large can crushed pineapple (undrained)
Remove from heat and pour into a large mold or bowl. Chill until firm.
Note: One of my friends likes this spread on top of a toasted bagel with cream cheese. I've gotta tell you, it's nummy that way, too.
