When a recipe is ripped from your cookbook year after year, becomes covered in bits of ingredients, and is requested as a staple at holiday dinners, you know you’ve hit on something. I know I did when a friend from Los Angeles handed me her recipe for Cranberry Pomegranate Jello Mold. Just dump all the ingredients into a bowl, pour them into your favorite mold (mine is vintage Tupperware) and refrigerate. Leftovers (if there are any!) are wonderful in sandwiches, as a layer for trifle, or simply scarfed down with a spoon. Let’s hope this becomes one of your holiday favorites year-round!
