Cranberry Relish Gelatin

Submitted by: LINNIEBETH

Introduction

Cranberry Relish is very refreshing in the summer. An excellent accompaniment to a Thanksgiving turkey, and a lovely side dish for most any pork or turkey sandwich.

Directions

Before I begin, I refrigerate the celery, oranges and apples; and freeze the cranberries. Having all the produce cold will help the gelatin set up quickly.
Choose any red gelatin- raspberry, cherry, black cherry, etc.
Bring 1 cup water to boil and dissolve gelatin in large bowl. Add 4-5 ice cubes and allow to cool.
While gelatin is cooling, chop, grate or grind produce. I use a meat grinder to run all the produce through; however a grater can be used or even a food processor.
I begin with the oranges- which produces mostly juice and will keep the apples from discoloring.
Grind, chop or juice your oranges into a large bowl; next run the celery through, then apples and finally cranberries.
If you really like cranberries use a whole bag, if it is not a real favorite- use less.
Sprinke the package of unflavored gelatin and sweetener (Splenda or other) over the chopped up produce and stir to dissolve.
Optional:
Add chopped nuts- pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts- and stir.
Pour all the produce into the cooling gelatin, stir to taste and see if it is sweet enough for your taste, or if it is too sweet grind a few more cranberries in.
When you are satisfied, pour into covered container and refirgerate until fully set.

    It is possible to find cranberries in the frozen food section when they are out of season. Other wise they are found in the fresh fruit an vegetable section in your local store - 2/19/09

    This is a wonderful recipe. So easy to adjust to personal taste, and presentation. I juice all of the ingredients so that I get the cranberry 'sause' consistency. If you like the chunks of stuff, just chop according to your own preference. - 2/18/09

  • OH cool! I didn't know this recipe was already on here! We've made this for years. I never made it with Splenda though - actually I just left the sugar off because there was already plenty in the gelatin packs! - 9/15/10

    If you REALLY love cranberries, Jello makes a cranberry flavored Jello that works well with this recipe. My family prefers the berry or cherry flavor though. - 2/17/09
