To make the cranberry pineapple mini jellies, collect the juice from one 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple, and add enough water to the juice to make 2 1/2 cups of liquid. Pour the diluted pineapple juice into a saucepan, and bring it to boil. Transfer the liquid into a large bowl containing the contents of two 3-ounce packages of Jell-O Raspberry Flavor Gelatin. Stir the mixture diligently to dissolve the gelatin. Incorporate the crushed pineapple into one 16-ounce can of whole-berry cranberry sauce, 2/3 cups of chopped walnuts and a chopped apple. Divide the mixture amongst 24 lined muffin cups. Place the muffin cups in the refrigerator, and chill them until the jellies are firm. Extract the jellies from the liners to serve them.
The cranberry pineapple salad jelly recipe uses strawberry-flavored gelatin instead of raspberry-flavored gelatin and pear instead of apple. Put the salad jelly in a bowl for sharing. It includes a garnish of reserved crushed pineapple, and the recipe also suggests arranging pear slices on top to create a nice finishing touch.
