Are you in my family??? :) This has been in my husband's family FOREVER!! If I don't make this at Thanksgiving, they might disown me!!! Thanks for posting - my copy is old - and cranberry stained - plus doesn't use accurate mearuements b/c it was written prior to the size cans of pineapple we now have. This is so much better than cranberry sauce - tart and refreshing - perfect with turkey!!! I think I drain the pineapple and then use the liquid for part of the liquid component - I use my food processor for the cranberries, celery and orange. It is tedious the way my in-laws do it - this is easier!!!
