Harvest Cranberry Mold
A Tupperware recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
2 cups water
2 pkgs. (3 oz. each) cranberry-flavored gelatin
1 cup cranberry or cran-apple juice cocktail
2 medium pears or apples, cored & chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Red & green grapes for garnish (optional)

Microwave 2 cups water on high 3 to 5 minutes until boiling. Carefully remove from microwave & stir in gelatin until completely dissolved, about 2 minutes.

Pour cranberry juice cocktail into a lg. measuring cup or bowl. Add enough ice to make 1-3/4 C. Stir gelatin mixture into cranberry juice until ice is dissolved. Chill mixture until slightly thickened, about 30 min., stirring occasionally. Mixture should be about the consistency of unbeaten egg whites. 

Spray a gelatin ring mold (Tupperware® has a great one) with non-stick cooking spray; wipe smooth with a piece of paper towel. When gelatin mixture has thickened, gently stir in apples (or pears) & walnuts. Pour into prepared mold. Seal & refrigerate until gelatin is firm, several hrs. or overnight.

To serve, remove seal & unmold onto a plate. If desired, fill center with grapes.
