Cran-Raspberry Jello

My MIL made this jello the first Thanksgiving I came to meet their family and we both loved the combination of flavors.  Every year since then, we make it when we're together for the holidays. 

Cran-Raspberry Jello - From my Mother-in-Law
{Print Recipe}

1 20-oz can crushed pineapple
2 4-serving (or 1 8-serving) boxes of raspberry jello
1 16-oz can whole cranberry sauce
1 medium apple

First, open the can of pineapple, and drain the juice from the pieces.  Reserve the juice!!

Add enough cold water to the pineapple juice to make 3 C.

Pour into a sauce pan and bring to a boil.

Then, remove from the heat and stir in the raspberry gelatin until dissolved.

Stir in the can of whole cranberries in sauce and allow the heat to melt apart the cranberry sauce.

Pour into a large bowl, and refrigerate for about an hour, until the mixture is the consistency of beaten egg whites.

Then, stir in the diced (and peeled) apple and drained pineapple.

Pour into a greased mold, or leave in the large bowl, and refrigerate for 4 more hours, until firm.

Carefully invert when set and serve.


  1. You cannot go wrong with that combination of flavors - the sweetness of pineapple and tartness of cranberries!

  2. This looks so good. Very much like our holiday molds served on Thanksgiving and Christmas years ago.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
