Put boiling water into blender, add lemon gelatin and blend 20 seconds.
Add orange, cranberries, sugar, salt and blend again until ingredients are finely chopped.
Add in pecans and pulse until coarsely chopped.
Pour into mold and place in refrigerator until set.
Note: This recipe has been our family for decades, and the last time my mother tried to make it, it didn't set. Prevailing opinion at the time was that perhaps she bought the wrong size of gelatin or that the formula of the gelatin had changed. At any rate, I copied this from a tattered recipe card that didn't specify size of box. It might be more firm if you also add in some unflavored gelatin in step 1. Good luck! Next time I try this I will modify the recipe, but if you do, by all means, comment away!
