“Its not Thanksgiving for me unless I have cranberry jello salad. This recipe comes from my mother's side of the family and has been a tradition at Souder Thanksgiving meals for as long as I have been alive. Super easy and delicious! Cooling and chilling take several hours, so prepare at least a day before you plan on serving. I always double the recipe; if you do this, split between at least two containers before chilling or it will take forever to set. (Its still good if it doesn't set!)”
2 quarts
