Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? If you are planning your meal this weekend you need to add this – it’s the best thing ever with a turkey dinner. In fact I can hardly make myself eat a turkey meal without it! This year we are going to my Mom’s and I’m taking this delectable dish-and oyster dressing. My Dad loves oyster dressing but my Mom does not. So she will stuff the turkey with her recipe of yummy stuffing and I will make a 9×9 of oyster dressing and we will all be happy
We have a Turkey dinner for Christmas with my husbands family and I always take this cranberry salad. And it is always a hit!
My Grandma went home to heaven last year in early December. Recipes she passed down are special. I will think of her every time I make this – and remember the time I called her to ask exactly how she made it.

Grandma Bussey’s Cranberry Salad
1 cup raw cranberries 2 oranges, 3-4 apples, 2-3 stalks celery
Wash all, core apples, peel oranges, trim celery ends.
Use food chopper to chop all fruits in small pieces.
You will also need one can of crushed pineapple. (about 20oz. and don’t drain it)
Place 2 pkg. of Raspberry jello in a bowl. (regular sized packs not large)
Add two cups HOT water and mix well – till jello is dissolved.
Add one cup cold water. Using an Italian glass measuring cup is optional but does make the whole process much more enjoyable and photo worthy. Find yours here.
You also need 3/4 cup of sugar. I used my new china 1 cup measure and just didn’t fill it all the way to the top.
Add the chopped fruits, pineapple and sugar to the jello mixture.
Stir. Stir some more.
Pour into a beautiful bowl. Photograph it with your Italian Glass Measure just because.
Cover Cranberry Salad, place in refrigerator overnight to set. Mine always sets up!
Serve with a traditional Turkey meal – you know, turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy…
To me a turkey dinner is not complete without Grandma Bussey’s Cranberry Salad. YUM.
