A time for traditions...

This recipe has been in our family for years. My mom made it at holidays. I have no idea where it came from. I have carried on the tradition of making it each year. I love old recipes and the way they are written sometimes makes me laugh. I hope you will enjoy this one and make it one of your traditional dishes.

Cranberry Mold

1 C. ground cranberries
1 C. ground unpared apples
1 C. sugar
1 pkg. gelatine (I use strawberry jello)
1 C. hot water
1 can crushed pineapple
1/2 C. seeded Tokay grape halves (I use purple seedless grapes)
1/4 C. broken nut meats (I use pecans)

Combine cranberries, apples and sugar. Dissolve gelatine in hot water; add pineapple (with juice). Chill until partially set. Add cranberry-apple mixture, grapes and nut meats. Pour into mold (I most often put in a pretty glass bowl that belonged to my mom). Chill overnight or until set.
