The Pink Stuff
It is referred to as "The Pink Stuff" and my lovely mother-in-law makes it for Thanksgiving and Christmas each year. It is gobbled up in great quantities and loved by all who are lucky enough to taste it. One day I was looking through an old cookbook called A Taste of Oregon and I came upon a recipe that looked very similar to the description my Mom-in-law has given me as to how she creates her pink stuff.
P.S. If you're like The Husband's family, you might as well make a double batch while your at it. Take my word for it. There will be no leftovers.
Mother's Cranberry Christmas Salad (a.k.a. The Pink Stuff)
1 pound fresh cranberries
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup drained, crushed and/or tidbits pineapple
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup whipped cream
Grind cranberries. Add sugar, then pineapple. Add marshmallows. Let this set in refrigerator overnight. Add whipped cream just before serving. Serves 6-8.
