Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped

  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, with juice

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ½ pint heavy whipping cream

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the cranberries, pineapple (with juice) and sugar. Let stand for about an hour, to let sugar dissolve, and then pour the mixture into a strainer over a bowl. Let drain, covered, in the refrigerator for at least two hours, or overnight. (Note: The drippings make a wonderful cranberry punch, when mixed with lemon-lime soda!)

  2. Before serving, whip the cream until soft peaks form. (You can sweeten the whipped cream with a little sugar, if desired.) In a large bowl, mix together the cranberry mixture, walnuts and marshmallows. Fold in the whipped cream and store in refrigerator until serving.
