Cranberry Relish Mold

Is it the same with your family that Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are a bit similar? At least the sides seem to do a repeat for Christmas Day dinner. This is another Miller family tradition. I am lacking a 5 cup mold, but my husband was able to find a disposable Heft mini-tube pan. I hope it works.

Cranberry Relish Mold

1 9 oz. can crushed pineapple (8 oz. is fine)
1 3 oz. package cherry gelatin
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup ground fresh cranberries
1 small unpeeled orange — seeds removed, ground (food processor)
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Drain pineapple — reserve syrup, add water to make 1/2 cup. Dissolve gelatin in 1 cup hot water. Add sugar, syrup, lemon juice. Chill until partially set. Add fruits, celery, nuts. Chill in a 5-cup ring overnight — Serves 8 to 10.

  2. Charles and I made almost this exact recipe yesterday! I love it because we had it when I was little and it adds a pretty color to the table. I’d never heard of filling balls before, but I may have to try them. However, will you still love me if I say that I enjoy the mushy texture of stuffing?
