I'll bet this recipe is over 75 years old! My husband's Grandma made this every year for the holidays. Now his Aunt does, she even grinds her own cranberries in her mother's old fashion grinder. I think that is too much work but knock your socks off if you have one! Call me lazy, but I use a food processor. You will need to begin the prep process the 2 nights before. This is very sweet, personally, I am not crazy about the marshmallows, but they are pretty.
