This is a great holiday salad - even people who don't like cranberries will love this! Excellent with turkey or ham.
1 (12 to 16 oz.) package
1 c. sugar
1 (3 oz.) package cranberry gelatin (if not available use black cherry)
1 c. boiling water
1 c. broken pecans
Sour cream or whipped cream for garnish
Wash cranberries and discard any soft or
spoiled berries. Grind remaining cranberries in a food processor. Pour berries
in a medium bowl. Add sugar and mix until dissolved. Stir in nuts. In the microwave, heat water
to boiling in a glass (microwave safe) measuring cup. Dissolve gelatin in the hot
water. Let mixture cool until it’s just warm. Pour gelatin liquid over cranberry mixture and stir well. Refrigerate until
completely set. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or whipped cream. Yield: 12 servings.
