recipe 44: Ruby's Cranberry Salad (Salad)

My Great Grandmother, Ruby Broadway, passed away before I was even born.  However, through all the stories and recipes, I feel as if I know her.  She could cook, sew, raised 6 kids during the depression...all with a husband who felt the need to "ride the rails" like a hobo from time to time. She was from Chattanooga TN, and according to her kids, a wonderful woman.
This is her Cranberry Salad recipe.


THE RECIPE

1 lb fresh cranberries
1 or 2 oranges
2 small packages orange jello
2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups hot water
1/2 cup chopped nuts (Walnuts work well, I like Pecans)

Grind up the oranges(with peel) and cranberries in a food processor. ,  Mix in sugar and set aside.
In separate bowl, mix jello and hot water until dissolved. Let stand until cool. (juices from oranges make up for extra water) 
Mix with fruit, add nuts and place in casserole dish, mold or bowl of choosing.
Refrigerate until firm.
