Fresh Cranberry Salad


12 oz fresh cranberries
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 pound red grapes, halved and seed removed
1 pint heavy cream, whipped
1 cup chopped, toasted nuts


Chop nuts coarsely, spread out on baking sheet and toast at 350
degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Chop Cranberries through food processor using coarse blade. Stir
in sugar and let stand overnight.

Next morning, drain well, pressing lightly to remove excess juice.
(reserve the juice for another use like in fruit punch.) Cut grapes
in half and remove seeds if necessary. Add grapes and nuts to
well-drained cranberry mixture. (This may be done ahead) and

Just before serving, fold the whipped cream into the cranberry
mixture. Serve immediately.
