Cranberry Salad

I just had to post this recipe before Christmas. Jane again shared her family recipe for this delicious Cranberry Salad. I now understand why everyone who taste this, loves it.


  • 3/4 of a 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large box of strawberry jello
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup diced apples

Ina medium sauce pan bring the cranberries, water and salt to a boil. Once it starts to boil add the baking soda and continue to boil for about 10 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the sugar and jello, stirring until completely dissolved. Stir in the marshmallows while the mixture is still hot so they will also dissolve. Let the mixture cool a bit then add the nuts, celery, carrots and apples. Pour into a 7 x 9 baking dish and refrigerate overnight to set.
