Step 1

Finely chop cranberries in food processor, mix with sugar. Set aside

Stir boiling water into combined gelatin and salt in large bowl 2 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in cold water, lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves. Refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn through gelatin leaves a definite impression).

Stir in cranberries, orange and nuts. Spoon into 5-cup mold that has been lightly sprayed with no stick cooking spray.

Refrigerate about 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Garnish as desired.

Store leftover gelatin mold in refrigerator.

Makes 10 servings.
