Combine the following into your serving dish and set aside:

  • 2 cups ground raw cranberries (This is easy to do. Just put the berries in either a food processor or blender and spin until coarsely chopped.)
  • 1 ground orange, including the peel (see above)
  • 1 16 oz. Can crushed pineapple, drained. Reserve the liquid and add water to make 1 cup.
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 1/2-cup sugar
  • 1-cup pecans, finely chopped, but not to powder

    In separate bowl, mix

  • 1 package lemon Jell-O
  • 1 package cherry Jell-O
  • 2 cups boiling water
    the reserved pineapple juice/water mixture (1 cup)

    Stir until Jell-O’s dissolve. Then pour over the fruit mixture. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until set.
