Okay, I don't have a name for it and I don't have a picture of it, but I wanted to share a cranberry recipe that I got from a girlfriend of mine.  It's delicious:

1 bag cranberries
1 cup sugar
2 boxes of apricot jello
2 boxes of raspberry jello
2 bags frozen raspberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chopped up dried apricots

Boil cranberries according to directions on the bag
Add an extra cup of water
When the cranberries are close to being done add the 4 boxes of jello and stir
Add frozen raspberries and stir
Remove from heat

Once that cools a bit add walnuts and apricots

Note: I have found that it is better to let the mix get close to room temp before you
add the dried apricots and walnuts otherwise they absorb all the liquid.

*It's really very good!  It's more like dessert.   ENJOY! 

So now all you have to do is sign our linky to lead us and/or our guests to you to swap a recipe.  Check them all out, and we'll check yours.  If you don't want to write it all down & know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!  Enjoy and Bona Petite!!!  Thanks for cooking/sharing along with us!   
Nummmmers to all!

YUM! I would have to leave out the nuts though. I allergic to walnuts. :-(

I hate raspberries, but Bill loves them and cranberries, but doesn't eat walnuts. I would make this without the nuts and I know he would love this especially at Thanksgiving.
Thanks for sharing and sorry I was so late... I kept thinking it was Wednesday... that's what happens when you don't work, HaHa!
Lubs ya... girlfriend.
