  • 1 package cranberries or 2 cups dried
  • 4-6 sheets gelatin or agar-agar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can pineapple crushed
  • 1 whole apple
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup whole cream optional


  • I opt to use dry cranberries and soak them in water for about 10 min. to plump them up again.  Keep the juices, add the gelatin sheets or agar-agar, and pour into a mixer or food processor
  • add the sugar, pineapple apples and pulse
  • add the walnuts and pulse a few more times, don't go full puree.  It's nice to have some texture
  • add cream if you desire, this lightens the color and makes it a bit creamer.  Put in a container and put if fridge over-night. 
  • the next day, it's ready to be a nice topper for your turkey or other meat of choice
