Cranberry Salad Mold


Cranberry Salad Mold brings to my mind memories of my childhood holidays. Special care was taken to present a holiday meal that was unforgettable. I don't see people using molds anymore, so this recipe brings back sentimental memories. I don't remember a Thanksgiving or Christmas that didn't include a cranberry recipe. Whether is was fresh cooked sauce or an elaborate mold filled with fruits and nuts. Cranberries are a holiday tradition in my kitchen. Enjoy this Cranberry Salad Mold recipe with your Christmas meal.

1 c. sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
