    In the cranberry salad are all the things raw and if you can’t grind can you chop finely?

      Yes, to both questions, Emily! Good luck with it!

    Haven’t tried it yet, so can’t know how to rate it, but being it’s an Omish recipe,, it would probably rate a4

    I enjoyed a delicious cranberry salad at a gathering, and was told this was the recipe used. I want to make it to take to a potluck (so I want it to turn out as good as the one I tasted previously), but I don’t see where the recipe specifies how much cold water to use in the Jello.

    If the boxes of Jello are the smaller (3 oz) size, then that would normally call for a total of 4 cups of water (2 of boiling and 2 of cold), but the water amount is usually reduced when adding fruit, so in that case, I wonder if any cold water is required at all. Perhaps they should be the larger 6 oz. boxes of Jello.

    Can you tell us which size boxes of Jello and the amount of cold water to use for best results? Thank you!

      Trixie, glad you liked the salad! Good questions, I am happy to check with Gloria. When do you need this info by?

        (I apologize if this is a duplicate reply. I posted a reply previously, but don’t see it now.) I’d like to take the cranberry salad to a potluck on Dec. 13, but would appreciate the information even if it’s not available until later than that. This is a perfect salad to take to Christmas gatherings, with its beautiful red color and the traditional seasonal cranberries. Thanks for your help!

        Okay, Trixie, I will try to get that info for you and email it to you! – kevin
