Mom's Thanksgiving Cranberry Jello Mold

Mom's Thanksgiving Cranberry Jello Mold created by May I Have That Rec

A MUST for us! A neighbor in Omaha had given this to my Mom in the early'60's and she has made it every Thanksgiving since. Now I make the holiday, so I make the mold! It's very easy. Keep in mind that this has walnuts just in case you have guests who are allergic to nuts. Enjoy! *You can make this 2 days before serving so I will make it on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and keep it in the mold in the refrigerator and just unmold it before serving.

    This recipe is very much like the Cranberry Jello Mold I had every Thanksgiving growing up. My Mother passed away in 2007 and a lot of her recipes and things disappeared. I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using raspberry Jello. It is Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I just put the mold into the frig to completely set. It is delicious. The apples, celery and walnuts really enhance this recipe. Thank you so much. I will continue to use only this recipe...

    Thank you! Although I have not checked this year, I have tried to find this on the Jello website for multiple years! A slice of my childhood reclaimed! You are right, this is a must for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
