Since I haven’t been cooking much this week thanks to this stupid virus, my mom has emailed me another guest post for the blog.  =]

Grandma’s Cranberry Glop

Let me start by saying I have no idea why my mom’s cranberry dish is called glop, other than the ingredients are all glopped together.  However, it’s been a part of our Thanksgiving tradition all of Ariel’s and my life and we all love it.  I am offering two versions one nonvegetarian and one vegetarian.  You might wonder how any cranberry dish would fit into the non veg category, it’s due to gelatin.  Many don’t realize this but gelatin is made from animal tissue.  If you interested in more  gelatin info click here. I would also love to see what recipes you and your loved ones share on the holidays.  Please feel free to share them with us!

Grandma’s Cranberry Glop

  • 1 box red gelatin (cranberry or other flavor is fine)
  • ½ cup hot water ½ cup cold water
  • 2 cans whole cranberries drained well
  • 1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple drained well
  • Crushed walnuts, the recipe doesn’t say an amount I’m guessing about ½ cup but use more or less to suit your personal preference
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Pour hot water onto gelatin stir until dissolved, then mix in cold water
  2. Refrigerate until it starts to thicken, watch this carefully!
  3. Once about ½ way thickened mix well with cranberries, pineapple, nuts and lemon juice
  4. Refrigerate a few hours longer the gelatin will continue to thicken

This is best made early in the morning or the night before.

The vegetarian version is very much the same.

  • 2 cans of whole cranberries, drain excess liquid but not all the liquid!
  • 1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple drained well
  • Chopped walnuts, again use an amount to suit your tastes
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Just toss all the ingredients together and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
