Cranberry Mold Salad

This has got to be one of my all time favorite holiday salads.  My mom and dad have made it for as long as I can remember and I have carried on the tradition in our family. 

1 c. ground raw cranberries
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. hot water
1/2 c. red grapes (halved)
1 c. ground apples
1 3oz pkg lemon jello
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple (drain juice and save)
1/4 c. chopped walnuts (optional)

combine cranberries, apples, pineapple and sugar.  Mix hot water and pineapple juice to make 2 cups, heat and dissolve jello in it.  Pour into a bowl and chill until partially set.  After it is partially set, add cranberry, apple, pineapple mixture, grapes and nuts.  Chill until firm.  Enjoy.
