My Mother's Cranberry Relish 2 Ways

My Mother's Cranberry Relish 2 Ways


Just like in every movie where a guy is being hassled by the cops, you can do this the easy way or the hard way.  Both of these can be made ahead of time.  I actually like this better the day after I make it so the flavors have time come together. First the easy way which is the way my mother does it:

1 Can Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1 Can Mandarin Oranges Drained
1 Can of Crushed Pineapple Drained
1 Package of Strawberry (or other red jello) made per directions on the box

Break up the jello with a fork and mix in the cranberry sauce, mandarins, and pineapple.  Chill and serve.

And now the hard way, or the way I do it:


2 Bags of Fresh Cranberries
1 Bottle of Cherry 7-Up
1 Can Mandarin Oranges Drained
1 Can of Crushed Pineapple Drained
1 Package of Strawberry (or other red jello) made per directions on the box

Add the cranberries and the Cherry 7-Up to a medium sized pot on medium high heat until it comes to a boil.  After it comes to boil turn it down to a simmer and cook until reduced by half.
Break up the jello with a fork and mix in the cranberry, mandarins, and pineapple. Chill and serve.

  1. instead of making the jello according to the directions and then mashing it up with a fork, try this: right after putting the jello in the water and mixing, add the cranberries and pineapple, and then put it in the fridge.
