Cranberry Relish

Just in the St. Nick of time (and notice, by the way, how he is eyeballing the relish)! Be sure and add this to your Christmas menu.  My good friend Phyllis brought this dish to a church Christmas party one year and gave me the recipe so that I could add it to our holiday meal traditions.  It is a big hit with everyone and full of yummy goodness.
2 cups ground fresh cranberries (I just zap mine in the Ninja blender)
1 cup sugar
2 small pkgs. Cherry Jell-O
1 15-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained and juice reserved
1 apple, unpeeled (Red Delicious is good) sliced and chopped
2 oranges (regular oranges NOT navel.  Tried that.), peeled, sliced and chopped
grated rind from one orange
1 cup chopped pecans
1.  Mix Jell-O with 2 cups boiling water, 1 cup sugar and reserved pineapple juice.  Let thicken in refrigerator. DO NOT LET IT SET COMPLETELY.
2.  Add other ingredients, already mixed together.
NOTE:  You can substitute cranberry Jell-O for the cherry
