Thanks for this recipe, looks really good...I'll use black cherry or raspberry Jello as you suggest; just seems the perfect ingredient.
Maybe even use canned, drained mandarin orange segments?and not just for Thanksgiving; any time poultry is served( fried chicken; BBQ chicken or maybe even w/ roast pork or pork chops

Fresh Cranberry Salad 2 bags of fresh cranberries 4 large apples 2 large oranges 2 pkgs.jello,I use black cherry or raspberry the original used lemon but mom liked these two flavors better. 2 Cups sugar,more or less to taste.I would add at least the 2 cups,cranberries are tart. 2 Cups boiling water 1 Cup Chopped walnuts or more if you like. Wash and pick through cranberries removing any bad ones or stems,core apples leave unpeeled,peel oranges.Grind apples,oranges and cranberries.If you do this in a food processor do not over process or you will have a mess,not the texture you are looking for. Add 2 Cups boiling water to the jello and sugar stir until dissolved.Add this to the ground cranberry mixture,stir in chopped walnuts.Pour into serving bowl and chill until set.I make this the night before so it sets well.My family likes this served with cool whip on top.
