Cranberry Salad

I don't know why its called cranberry salad when truely its just a cranberry jell-o. Unless you put something in it like apples and walnuts and pineapple now that would be a salad of sorts. This is the recipe that I got from my mother-in-law. From what I understand this was her mothers recipe.
Cranberry salad a nice thick and set up jell-o.
Cranberry Salad

12 ounce bag, whole cranberries washed and drained
2 small oranges
1 ½ cup sugar
1 box Jell-O Raspberry
1 box Jell-O Cherry
1 ½ cups boiling water
Ice cubes (to start jell process)

In a blender, blend cranberries and oranges till desired chunkiness or smooth. Add sugar and blend till mixed well.

In a large bowl dissolve Jell-O into boiling water when dissolved add ice to begin the setting process. 

Remove what little ice is remaining. Add to Jell-O cranberry mixture and stir till combined.

Cover with saran wrap and put in fridge to set up. Make this the day before to ensure a good set.

*Note: You can adjust the sugar and it will have no affect on the set. I usually cut the sugar down to anywhere from 3/4 cup to 1 cup. And there you have it a nice and thick jell-o that goes well with turkey and also slathered over a hot dinner roll. Now, I'm going to have to make some more just because there was none to bring home for leftovers.
