Cranberry Fluff

The time has come…time to start the Thanksgiving preparations!  Yea!   I just love this holiday:).     Nothing is better than being with the people I love the most, and eating more food than a person should while visiting and playing games.  I definitely have so very much to be thankful for:)

We will be eating our traditional Ginger Glazed Turkey, but I won’t be cooking it until tomorrow, so…..that recipe will have to wait.  I did get the Cranberry Fluff ready though.  It is the perfect side dish to compliment a turkey dinner.

My beautiful friend Shani gave me this recipe years ago when we used to host an annual Thanksgiving dinner for the older members of our church.   She would bring an extra large bowl filled with this fluffy goodness, and there would never be any left over.  In fact, EVERYONE would come in the kitchen and ask for the recipe!

It is a mix between cranberry sauce and jello salad.  SWEET, but not too SWEET, perfect!! Here is the recipe:

  • 4c fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped in a food processor 
  • 2c mini marshmallows 
  • 3/4c sugar

  • 1/2c grapes, chopped
  • 1/2c chopped nuts 
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1c whipped cream

**store bought whipped cream makes this recipe  fluffier than home made cream.  But both are good.
