Fresh Cranberry Sauce


  • 1 lb. fresh cranberry
  • 1 apple- cored
  • 1 orange peel
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 T. water
  • 1  6 oz. box of cherry jello
  • 1 c. ice


  1. Pour cranberries, apple and your orange peel in a large bowl
  2. Add 2 cups of sugar and mix together until well coated
  3. Pour fruit mixture into a high powered blender (I use a Blentec)
  4. Drizzle 1 T. of water into the mixture
  5. Blend together until smooth (a few chunks are okay)
  6. Once blended pour the mixture back into your large bowl and set aside
  7. Boil 1 C. of water
  8. Add boiled water and jello together in a small bowl- dissolve and stir for 3 minutes
  9. Add 1 C. of ice cups to the jello mixture
  10. Place jello into the fridge for 20 minutes
  11. After 20 minutes your jello mixture should be in the beginning of stages of thickening- that's okay
  12. Add the jello mixture to your bowl of blended fruit and stir together

  13. Transfer into a baking dish or glass bowl with a lid and place in fridge for at least 3-4 hours before serving
