The Mid-Century Menu
Retro Recipes Tested Here!
Just got around to catching up with what has been on the Mid-Century Menu!
This recipe sure takes me back – molded cranberry salad was on every Thanksgiving Day table when I was a kid, back in the 60s. I had to dig out my mother’s recipe, for a comparison.
The recipe from my youth is a variation – it calls for one package each of strawberry, cherry, and raspberry jello, ground cranberries and sugar, chopped nuts (walnuts were always used), chopped celery, and crushed pineapple. We always loved it!
If you would like a copy of my mom’s recipe, for use or reference, just let me know by email.
Your blog never fails to surprise me – I look forward to many, many more recipes.
All the best in 2013!
Thanks, Joe! We have a very similar recipe that we still make in my family every year, except we have chopped apples and oranges instead of pineapple and use only raspberry gelatin. Somewhere along the way the celery was dropped out and never added again. It is seriously so good.
I hope you enjoy reading the blog in 2013 as much as you have in the past!
