Thanksgiving Feast!!

We try and eat fairly healthy. We raise all of our own meats and try and make things from scratch, use organic when we can, etc. My Mom was the jello queen. She made some really good jello salads. Her cranberry jello salad was always on the table at Thanksgiving. Healthy or not, I am now making it. Here is my Mom's cranberry jello salad recipe as she wrote it to me.

Holiday Cranberry Salad

1 - 6 oz. pkg. cranberry jello
1 – 6 oz. pkg. raspberry jello
1 – 20 oz. can crushed pineapple (in syrup)
1- 11 oz. can mandarin oranges
½ c. orange juice or juice of 1 orange
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Dissolve jellos in 1 ½ cup boiling water. Add the pineapples, oranges and all their juice. Mix in cranberries crushing the large pieces. Mix in nuts. Refrigerate and stir several times before it sets everything does not float on top.

Enjoy…. Love, Mom
