3/4 cup pineapple juice (drained from the pineapple)
3/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 small package cherry-flavored "jello"
1 cup sugar
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup ground raw cranberries
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Grated zest of 1 orange
In a small saucepan, combine the pineapple juice, water, and lemon juice and bring to a boil over high heat.
Remove from the stove and stir in the jello and sugar, continue stirring until both are completely dissolved.
Refrigerate until partially thickened.
Meanwhile, prepare the fruit, celery, nuts, and orange zest.
Lightly spray a mold or pan with no-cook cooking spray (of course, Mother didn't have this, she used a bit of shortening).
Fold the fruits etc. into the partially thickened jello and pour into the prepared mold or pan.
