  • Food processor


  • 1 package cranberries
  • 1 medium sized orange
  • 6 medium sized apples
  • 1 small package lemon jello
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water


  • In a small bowl, pour jello powder. Add in boiling water, stir together and allow to cool. (I do this all in my glass measuring cup).
  • In the bowl of a food processor, chop up apples, cranberries, and whole orange (peel and all). I typically cut the apples and oranges into slices and add them to the food processor. You want to only pulse it a few times to get it nice and chopped, not applesauce. I typically have to chop everything in three different batches because of the size of my food processor.
  • Pour all the chopped fruit into a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour jello water over the fruit and stir to combine. Add in 1 1/2 cups sugar and stir to combine.
  • Put a lid on it and put it in the fridge at least overnight.
  • Enjoy!
