If you're not very fond of cranberries, but like the idea of having them because they are traditional and festive, then you might like this recipe as much as I do. It's become a regular part of our Thanksgiving and/or Christmas meal.
1 lg. (6 oz.) box raspberry jello (sugar free works perfectly)
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple
1 8 oz. carton Cool Whip
1 C. chopped walnuts
1 lg. can whole-berry cranberries
Make jello using only 2 cups water. (You can use pineapple juice as part of the 2 cups.) Let jello set until just starting to gel, not solid. Empty can of cranberries, Cool Whip, drained pineapple and walnuts in a large bowl. Add jello and mix all together. Best if refrigerated a couple more hours.
This makes a pretty large batch. If you don't have a lot to feed I would half it.
Make the cranberry bowl by freezing water in between two bowls and letting cranberries float in the water. Add enough water to the top bowl to make it heavy enough to give you the thickness you want.
