    swissms's Note:

    We enjoy this during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Traditionally this is made with cherry Jell-O, however, to be a bit healthier I now make it with "no sugar added" fruit juice. Feel free to substitute cherry gelatin and water (made to package directions) in place of the unflavored gelatin and fruit juice. While many enjoy the addition of pecans, I omit due to personal preference. If you have young children, I recommend peeling the apple. If using an unpeeled apple, use a red apple for the best color.

    • 1 (1/4 ounce) package unflavored gelatin (Knox brand)
    • 1 cup cranberry-grape juice or 1 cup cranberry-raspberry juice or 1 cup other red juice, chilled
    • 1 cup cranberry-grape juice or 1 cup cranberry-raspberry juice or 1 cup other red juice, boiling
    • 2 cups fresh cranberries, chopped in a food processor
    • 1 (15 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained (if the tidbits are large you may want to cut in half)
    • 1 cup red seedless grapes, halved

    • 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
    • 1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped

      In a medium bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over the 1 cup chilled juice. Let stand for 1 minute.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 cup juice to boiling. (I heat the juice in a glass measuring cup in the microwave for 2 minutes.).

    4. 4
      Refrigerate until chilled but not set.

      Made this for thanksgiving and it was a big hit! I used sugar-free cherry jello and it was great. I am not a fan of cranberries (except craisins) but chopped up in the jello they were great. Made for PRMR.
