Mom's Cranberry Relish

This is Mom's recipe from the 1960s and 1970s.

Mom's Cranberry Relish ingredients
Makes about 6 servings
1 box cherry-flavored Jell-O (see Notes)
1 cup hot water
1 (#2 can) crushed pineapple, drained and liquid reserved
1 orange, ground (see Notes)
1 cup ground raw cranberries (see Notes:)
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup freshly chopped nuts
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Notes: I think Mom used 3-oz Jell-O™. Wash the orange and fresh cranberries, and grind them in a meat grinder using a fine blade until they are finely chopped.

I use Wild Strawberry or Raspberry Jell-O™ and add 1/2 cup more pecans. For extra flair, make in individual fluted molds, or spoon into scalloped, hollowed-out oranges.

Dissolve Jell-O in the hot water. Add reserved pineapple juice. Chill until consistency of an egg white.

Meanwhile, mix fruits, celery, nuts, sugar and lemon juice. Add to Jell-O and chill until firm.
