Directions:
Set a bowl and beaters in refrigerator to chill. Put rinsed cranberries into a saucepan. Mix in cold water and sugar. Bring to boil over medium heat and cook until skins of cranberries pop. Force cooked cranberries through a tight sieve or food mill. Set aside. Heat orange juice. Put gelatin and salt into a bowl. Add orange juice and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in sieved cranberries. Cool by chilling in refrigerator or pan of ice water until gelatin is slightly thicker than the consistency of thick, unbeaten egg whites. If you place in refrigerator, stir occasionally. If you chill over ice water, stir frequently. Very lightly oil a 1-1/2 quart fancy mold with salad oil. When gelatin mixture is of desired consistency, beat the whipping cream until of medium consistency using the chilled beaters and bowl. Fold whipped cream and nuts into gelatin mixture. Turn into prepared mold and chill until firm. To unmold: Run tip of knife carefully around edge of mold. Invert onto a chilled serving plate and remove mold.

Max's mother always made this dessert/salad for any and all Williams Family Christmas/Thanksgiving dinners. It looks like a lot of trouble but is worth the effort. It tastes great!
