This is one of my favorite holiday recipes. My friend Robin served it at Christmas over 20 years ago and I've made it every year since. It's super simple and delicious.
Cranberry Pineapple Jello Salad
2 Cups raw cranberries
1 1/2 Cups water
2/3 Cups sugar
1 Small package any red jello
1/2 Cup crushed pineapples
1/2 Cup pecans
In a medium saucepan add water and cranberries. Bring to simmer for ten minutes. Add sugar and jello (reminder it needs to be a small package of red jello). Let partly cool. Add mostly drained pineapples and the pecans. Pour into a pretty dish. Refriderate for 3 - 4 hours.
