Cranberry Mold

Cranberry Mold
This recipe shared from my friend, Anne, when our kids were all small, does not require the cranberries to be cooked.  It is tart, sweet and crunchy!

1 bag cranberries (12-oz), finely chopped (I used a food processor)
1 small cherry Jell-O
2 Red Delicious apples, finely chopped
1 cup chopped nuts
1 1/4 cup sugar

Make Jell-O using 1/2 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water. Put in refrigerator to thicken slightly. Fold in remaining ingredients until well blended; spoon into serving bowl or mold.

Refrigerate until firm.

Dearest Lorraine,

Looks yummy but how big a bag of cranberries you used? How many ounces... That would be helpful. Never knew that the cranberries can be used fresh, uncooked that is!
Love to you and have a great week.

That's so pretty!
I made a molded salad last week, for the first time in years. It was very well-received.

Being a fan of cranberries, I know I would love this. I used to make a similar recipe but I believe it had apples in it too.

Ann said...

that looks so good. I'm the only one in my family that likes cranberries though so it always seems like such a waste to make anything just for me since it's unlikely that I could eat it all myself.

Sounds like it will taste very fresh.

Pefect start to a new year of fewer "heavy foods".

Maryann said...

Love anything with cranberries and like the idea of the apples mixed in so I am going to give it a try

Just a little something from Judy said...

I remember that my grandma made this and I thought it was so good. I have not thought about it for years. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

My daughter Sam and I love cranberries, so every Christmas we stock up on this lovely fruit, and gobble it up—fresh, in baked goods and even smoothies.

Your stand up and take notice Cranberry Mold will be going into my berry repertoire!

Happy New Year!

I love the look of that cranberry mold with all the crunchy tartness of apples and cranberries.

Quick question - what am I supposed to eat this with? Can I eat it like jam on bread? Or is it just a dessert? I've never heard of a mold before.
