Mom's Famous Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce - a family recipe

Makes: 10 small side servings     Difficulty: Very Easy     Meal: Side Dish     Great for potlucks!

From my RV kitchen

Thanksgiving dinner at home (a.k.a. my RV) is my favorite way to celebrate the day. And yep, I cook it all - from soup to nuts - in my rig. For quite some time I'd been looking for a tasty sweet potato dish (recipe only - no video) that wouldn't overpower the rest of the meal. I found one and I think it's a keeper!


1 3 oz package red Jell-O - your favorite flavor
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup crushed pineapple with juice
1 16 oz can cranberry sauce - with or without berries
1 medium apple - peeled, cored and diced
1/3 cup coarsely chopped nuts (I like walnuts)


Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cranberry sauce and mash until dissolved. Add pineapple and stir.

Pour into bowl or mold and chill approximately 2 hours. Add diced apple and chill overnight or until firm.
