judy's cranberry relish

Many years ago, when we lived in the suburbs of Washington, DC, we spent many Thanksgiving Days sharing a meal at the Studebaker home with their family and friends. Mrs. Studebaker (Judy) served this and it has been a staple of our holiday meals ever since.  

1 small package cherry jello
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 T. lemon juice
9 oz.  pineapple cut into small pieces (tidbits cut in half work well)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped cranberries
1 orange, peeled with a knife to remove membranes, and sections cut-out separately to remove all inner membranes, chopped
1 cup chopped pecans

Drain juice from pineapple.  Add boiling water to sugar and stir.  Mix into jello and stir until goopy.  Add lemon juice, pineapple, celery, cranberries, orange and pecans.  Chill until firm.  Stir before serving.
