Cranberry Jello

This is my one and only must have (besides the turkey) at Thanksgiving. I have had this jello at every Thanksgiving I can remember. It's not actually like jello, because it's so full of fruit. Sometimes I like to add a little mandarin orange too. It's almost like dessert, and don't forget whipped cream on the top. It's great for Christmas too.

Cranberry Jello
1 (3oz) small package cranberry jello (or you can use cherry)
½ cup sugar
¾ cup boiling water
1 small can (8oz) crushed pineapple, UNDRAINED
1 cup ground cranberries (about 6 oz)
1 cup ground Granny Smith apples (about 1 1/2 medium apples)

1. Combine jello and sugar in a large bowl.
2. Add boiling water and stir until jello and sugar are dissolved.
3. Add fruit; mix well.
4. Pour into a 2 quart dish, 8 x 8 inch pan, or individual serving cups.
5. Chill overnight or until firm.

Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
