  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the gelatin mix and boiling water until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in the cold water. Transfer to a gelatin mold, or keep in a bowl; cover and refrigerate.
  2. Place the oranges, lemon, apples, and cranberries into a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over the top. Set aside so the fruit has time to bleed.
  3. When the gelatin is partially set, stir in the fruit. Chill until set, preferably overnight. It becomes tastier with age!

Great jello salad, loaded with fruit. We love all things tart and this fit the bill. Per other review, I will make with raspberry (or maybe apricot?) jello next time & there will be a next time.



This recipe was easy to make and turns out wonderful. Great for Thanksgiving and Christmas!!



Easy and delicious. I think its better with raspberry jello, but this depends on your taste buds.
