    Annie H's Note:

    This recipe is one my father-in-law was very fond of. It's a family favorite, not only because Pat loved it but also because it's dang good. Cook time is mostly chill time.

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
    2. 2
      While the water is heating, evenly scatter cherries and pecans in a 9x13" pan.
    3. 3
      When water boils, remove from heat and add both packages of getatin to it.
    4. 4
      Stir to dissolve gelatin completely.
    5. 5
      Add 2 cups of cold water.
    6. 6
      Pour gelatin mixture over cherries and pecans.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle marshmallows over the gelatin until it looks like you have enough to make a lovely blanket of marshmallow goodness.
    8. 8
      Using a flat hand, gently push the marshmallows down into the gelatin until they all have a gelatin coating (this is to keep them from shriveling).
    9. 9
      Cover with plastic wrap and let chill for about 6 hours, or until firm.
    10. 10
      Serve with dinner (this is not considered a dessert; it is a side dish; don't ask me why).
    11. 11
      Also, there is a family sensitivity to pecans and walnuts, thus there are few of them in this recipe.
    12. 12
      Please feel free to increase the amount of nuts to your taste.
