  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.

We've had a very similar recipe in the family for years. It's easy and delicious and a perfect addition to Thanksgiving dinner. We usually use 1 cup of sugar instead of 2 cups, and it tastes gr...

I used only about a cup of sugar with my cranberries and it was sweet enough. I also added some halved red grapes and skipped the nuts (allergies). I think the crushed pineapple really adds to...
