  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Drain pineapple, reserving liquid in 1-qt. liquid measuring cup. Remove 1 Tbsp. of the crushed pineapple; set aside for garnish. Add enough cold water to reserved liquid to measure 3 cups; pour into large saucepan. Bring to boil; remove from heat. Add gelatin; stir at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add cranberry sauce; stir until well blended. (Note: Due to the presence of whole berries in the cranberry sauce, the gelatin mixture will not be smooth.) Pour into large bowl. Refrigerate 1-1/2 hours or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites.)
  2. Stir in remaining pineapple, the apples and walnuts; stir gently until well blended. Pour into medium serving bowl.
  3. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Top with reserved crushed pineapple just before serving. Store leftover gelatin in refrigerator.

Everyone loves it, from the adults to the kids! Replaced a years old cranberry recipe I used to use for Thanksgiving.

I love this recipe I think it is delicious. I make it every year around the holidays.

Perfect, I've made this the past two Thanksgivings and everyone loves it, plus it looks so nice on the table.

My mom has been making this for years. I finally have the recipe for my family. My oldest son can hardly wait until ready to eat!
