 Look at that gorgeous bright red color! I love it. It is soooo good, slightly more tart than sweet so if you like it more sweet, add another 1/2 Cup of sugar! What is your favorite way to use cranberries for the holidays??

  1. This looks so good! It would make a great gift, too!

    You asked what we do with our cranberries. I make a layered Jell-O recipe that my mother-in-law gave me. I call it Cranberry Explosion Jell-O. I am shocked to say that it is my favorite thing on the table over the holidays.

    Following the recipe, I ended up with 3 8oz jars. I juiced a blood orange, added about an ounce of fresh lemon juice, and made up the remaining liquid with apple cider. Basically, I used what I had on hand. I also added a dash or two of cinnamon. It turned out wonderfully.

    Thank you for the excellent recipe.

  3. Going to try this for a friend for Christmas. Thank you for a simple, quick and easy recipe without a lot of unneccesary ingredients. How long does it stay good in fridge? Does it freeze well?
