Cranberry Jello Salad

Looking for the perfect addition to Christmas dinner and need a break from the traditional jellied cranberry sauce this holiday season? If so, this cranberry jello salad is just the solution. This recipe was given to me by B's mom Patti and it was a hit at our last Christmas dinner.

1 package raw cranberries
2 oranges
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon clear gelatin
1 small package cherry jello
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 cup finely chopped apples
½ cup chopped walnuts 

Wash cranberries and grind in a food processor. Peel one orange. Add the peeled orange into the food processor. Squeeze the juice from second orange into the food processor. Grind oranges and cranberries until well mixed. Pour into a bowl. Add sugar into the bowl and let mixture set for 2 hours. In a separate bowl, mix gelatin with ¼ cup cold water. Let sit for 5 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup boiling water with the package of cherry jello. Combine the gelatin mixture and the jello mixture. Add the gelatin and jello mixture to the fruit mixture, stirring until well combined. Add in celery, apples and nuts and stir until well combined. Put into a pam sprayed jello mold, cover and refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!
