4 oranges with peel left on
2 bags of cranberries
4 cups sugar
1 can (20 ounces) pineapple with juice
2 packages (6 ounces each) cherry Jell-O
3-3/4 cups boiling water
1 cup nuts

Instructions

Cut oranges into quarters. Remove the white stripe down the middle of the section with a paring knife. Grind in food processor into small pieces. Grind the cranberries in the food processor. Combine the oranges and cranberries into a large bowl and add the 4 cups of sugar and pineapple. Let this mixture stand until the sugar has dissolved. In a separate bowl mix the Jell-O and boiling water. Let cool slightly. Add to the orange/cranberry mixture. Add 1 cup of nuts.
