Why I Love This Recipe

A nice side dish to any holiday meal. Goes great with ham, prime rib, etc.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup water
3 oz package Raspberry OR Strawberry Gelatin
1 cup sour cream
1 pound whole canned cranberry sauce
1 Tbsp Lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped walnuts OR pecans


Heat water to a boil

Add gelatin and stir to dissolve

Remove from heat

Add sour cream and use a wire whisk to beat until smooth.

Stir in cranberry, lemon, and nuts.

Put in glass bowl or dish and chill till serving.

I usuaully make this in a 13 x 9 glass baking dish and double the recipe using either one box of raspberry jello and on strawberry or one big box of some combo like cranberry-rasp, etc

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I must have done something wrong with this recipe. It seemed like too much sour cream, I did use regular not a light version.The taste was not good. Also the color was a bright pink I was expecting a rich cranberry red color.
