Strawberry Jello Mold with Cranberry, OJ & Pineapple

I changed up the flavors in this year's holiday Jello mold a bit and have to say, this is a very nice flavor combination. Strawberry Jello Mold with Cranberry, OJ and Pineapple will be great with Thanksgiving dinner, but I think would work even better for Christmas because of the pineapple. And of course, the color is just amazing. While the molds add a little fun to the festivities, please don't let not having one stop you from making a Jello salad folks, simply use a bowl, baking dish, bundt pan, etc, anything goes... And it's sure to add a little chatter to the dinner table:@) Please note: The color is off in the pics, it's a very deep ruby red.

Recipe below makes approximately 5 C.
Tip: Don't worry about using a smaller mold 
(I'm thinking about the iconic Tupperware 4 C mold).
Simply pour any extra Jello into another bowl or cup,
think of it as the cook's treat:@)
Here I used a 3 C bundt pan and 2 1/2 C mold.
Came up a little short on the mold, but it still worked out!
Some folks will eat this as a side dish, some as dessert.
Having a little whipped cream on-hand is never a bad idea...
Just sayin'.

Strawberry Jello Mold with Cranberry, OJ & Pineapple
2 (3 oz, four serving size) strawberry Jello-regular or I used sugar free this time
1 C boiling water
15 oz can whole cranberry sauce
8 oz crushed pineapple, undrained
1 C orange juice
  1. In large bowl, dissolve Jello in boiling water.
  2. Stir in cranberry sauce until dissolved, add pineapple and orange juice, mix well.
  3. Pour into 5 cup mold sprayed with cooking spray (or two smaller bowls/molds).
  4. **Note: I poured mine into the molds right after mixing, the fruit settled a bit and is concentrated more towards the top (in the pictures). If you'd like your fruit to be more evenly distributed throughout the whole mold, allow mixture to partially set in fridge, about 30-40 minutes, give a good stir and then spoon into the mold.
  5. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours, overnight is always best.
  6. Dip mold in warm water, dry outside of mold, put plate on top, turn upside down to unmold.
  7. Cover and store in refrigerator until serving.
Make something just for fun this holiday season,
and have a happy day:@)🦃🎅
