Ingredients 
1 package (6 ounces) strawberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple
1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions 

In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water.

Drain pineapple, setting the pineapple aside and adding juice to gelatin. Stir in cranberry sauce, lemon juice, peel and nutmeg. Chill until mixture thickens. Fold in sour cream, pineapple and pecans. Pour into a
glass serving bowl or an oiled 9-cup mold. Chill until set, at least 2 hours.

Yield: 16-20 servings.
NOTE: I divided the mousse and poured into two molds measuring 6-inched across the top so I could place one at each end of the table.

This looks very good! It is a little like one I make, but I think my family might like this one better. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Lorraine!
