Great Granny’s Cranberry Sauce

Ever since I can remember, we’ve had this cranberry sauce at both Thanksgiving and Christmas.  It makes a lot, which is good, because everyone likes it.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 oz red jello
  • 5 1/2 cups liquid (use juice from fruit plus water if needed)
  • 4 cups ground cranberries
  • 4 cups crushed pinapple (mandarine oranges etc.)


  1. Mix sugar and jello into heated liquid.  let set in frigerator
  2. When hard add ground cranberries and pinapple.  Mix well, return to frig and reset.

Note:  I think the original recipe had walnuts or pecans in it.  My brother Joey doesn’t like anything with nuts, so over the years, it was dropped from the ingredients.
