I used strawberry jello and only added a small amount of additional sugar. I like the mandarin oranges whole so I ground up the pineapple instead. This reminds me of a salad my mother used to make. Thanks! Read More

I loved the taste. However it did not make a jello mold as I thought it would. I made it the day before Thanksgiving followed the instructions and put it in a mold but it never firmed up like a jello mold. So I spooned it into a dish and we ate it like a cranberry relish. Any thoughts as to why? Read More

Tried this as my contribution to our Thanksgiving feast. It was a hit--good combination of flavors. Only complaint is that it did not set up overnight. I had to put it in the freezer for a couple hours to soldify enough to serve. I'll make it again but next time I will use less sugar (it was sweeter than I like) and either halve the add-ins or double the amount of jello. Read More

I messed up and used a total of 4 cups water (2 hot/2 cold) because I followed the recipe on the jello boxes. The recipe only calls for 1 hot and 1 cold even though you used 2 boxes of jello. It was still very tasty just not firm. Can't wait to make this correctly!!! YUM! Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it so much they asked me to make it again for Christmas! I could not find Cranberry Jello in the stores so I ordered it online. Even people who do not like Cranberry Sauce liked it! Read More

I have made this twice for my sister at Thanksgiving. It turns out great. It makes a lot for just a few people. The recipe could be halved for just a few people. I bring home the left overs to eat myself. What a treat! I should make this more often. Read More
