This is a delicious cranberry sauce or relish! It was a triple blue ribbon winner at three large fairs! It was a family secret recipe until now. It is the most requested family recipe in our family.Even people who don't like cranberries, love this recipe.

This may be considered a salad, however, we had this for dessert, and yes, it was excellent. I used fresh cranberries, fresh pineapple and crushed pecans. The cherry Jell-O gave it a delightful flavor. This will be and very good summer salad. Thank you for sharing Betsy. "Uncle Bill"
