This year, when they come home for turkey dinner, give it some bounce

For a salad to live up to your holiday cooking, it should do more than just sit there. it should bounce, wobble, shimmer and shine. It should be a Jell-O brand gelatin salad.

Serve a Cranberry Wobbler

1-1/2 cups ground fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 packages (3 ounces each) or 1 package (6 ounces) Jell-O orange or lemon flavor gelatin

2 cups boiling water
1-1/2 cups cold water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 orange, sectioned and diced
1/2 cup chopped almonds or walnuts
