Cranberry and Strawberry Jello Mold with Walnuts, Apple and Celery

Yes folks, this Cranberry and Strawberry Jello Mold with Walnuts, Apple and Celery is a new holiday favorite here at Pig In Mud! It's bursting with big bold flavor and just look at that great color, this is a fun little holiday side dish:@) While this looks like a big bundt size Jello for a crowd, it's actually the smallest bundt pan, it holds 3 cups. Enough for about 6 people to get a nice hearty slice, but still small enough that it should be eaten in one meal.

Aim for about 1/4" dice for the add ins, my apple was a little chunkier this time.
I thought I had canned whole cranberry sauce but didn't. 
So I tossed some frozen cranberries into a pan with a splash of water and some sugar and cooked my own.

One last pic...
Yep, I'm smitten, and may I suggest we introduce younger generations to holiday Jello molds!
There will be lots of giggling, and they are truly great conversation starters:@)
