"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Dissolve Jello in hot water. Add 1/2 c. sugar. Add cold water. Set aside to cool and allow to set slightly. Chop other ingredients and cover with 1/2 c. sugar. Place these chopped ingredients into the Jello mixture and stir together. Place into an oblong container and place in refrigerator to set. Keeps up to 1 week in refrigerator.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
To make a large batch, I double the Jello and water measurements. I use 1 c. pecans, large can pineapple and 2 cans mandarin oranges. Also double the cranberries. This makes 2 oblong containers full.
NOTE: to make look more impressive, I slice the cranberries individually crosswise and they look like little circular pinwheels when set.
