Helpful hints

  • Use regular gelatin, if a higher calorie dish is desired.
  • Cranberry sauce does not need to dissolve completely in step #2.
  • Whole-berry cranberry sauce works well in this recipe.
  • For a variation, substitute canned pineapple, sliced peaches or applesauce for the mandarin oranges.
