Grandma Foxley made this every year for Thanksgiving and Mom did too. I got this recipe from LeaAnn Foxley (grandma) and she got it from her Mom, Nona Bingham. It is tart, delicious and great all year round!
It needs to be prepared the day before so it has time to set. Also it is easily doubled or tripled (depending on how big a Turkey Day dinner you are attending!) This will fit in a 9x9 dish (use glass, not metal, as this is acidic).
1 small (3oz) box of red jello. Mom uses Cherry, Grandma Foxley uses Strawberry)
1 Cup raw cranberries
-Dissolve Jello in 1 Cup boiling hot water per the instructions on the box. Set aside. Do not add the additional water the Jello package calls for. The fruit and the water added when blending will provide all that is needed.
-Blend fruit. First orange, then apple, then cranberries. You may need to add a little water to get it blend. Mom says she usually doesn't need to, but is she does it's no more than 1/4 cup. Mom blends the ingredients until smooth. Grandma leaves some fruity texture to them. So do it however your family likes it best.
-Stir fruit into dissolved jello and place the salad in refrigerator to set overnight before serving.
