Cranberry Jell-O
Clip these two recipesandsave
them for theholidays.Cranberry
flavored Jell-O was introduced
in 1994. Most of the time, it’s
not available, but usually as
Thanksgiving approaches, you
can find it on the store shelf. (If
not, we have some for sale.) It’s
not as sweet as many flavors - -
has a little tart flavor to it - - but
it’s great in a variety of recipes.

* How to unmold gelatin –

hours or overnight until com-
pletely firm. Before unmolding,
dip knife inwarmwater and run

seconds. Lift from water and
gently pull gelatin from edge
