Cranberry jello is a must for our family on Thanksgiving. We love eating it with turkey. Most Slavic people may find it strange eating something sweet with savory meat. Some of my relatives don’t even eat any kind of teriyaki or sweet and sour chicken because the thought of sweet meat is just too weird for them. I totally understand them. It’s something they aren’t used to. My mother on the other hand, always loved trying new things in the kitchen, and this cranberry jello happens to be one of them. Fortunately, everyone in my family loved it. It’s now considered a “necessity” at the Thanksgiving table. If you prefer not to eat it with your turkey, pour it into little individual cups and enjoy it just as a dessert. It’s a very refreshing dessert with the delightful texture of crushed pineapple and walnuts.
