Recipe by ColCadsMom
Got this recipe from a co-worker. It makes an enormous amount of sweet relish with just a touch of tartness from the cranberries. The raspberry jello is the key to even non-cranberry eaters enjoying the dish. Feel free to substitute cranberry Jello if you want a stronger cranberry flavor. I chop my nuts, cranberries, apples and oranges in a food processor. For a chunkier relish, chop the apples, oranges, and nuts by hand. I have thirded everything for a smaller amount using an 8 ounce can of crushed pineapple with good results as well. Can also be made with splenda and sugar free gelatin.
- 3 (3 ounce) boxes raspberry Jell-O gelatin
- 3 cups water
- 2 cups sugar
- 20 ounces crushed pineapple, undrained
- 12 ounces cranberries, finely chopped
- 3 large apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
- 3 navel oranges, peeled, seeded, and chopped
- 1 cup pecans, chopped (or walnuts)
