Cherry gelatin mold, with bing cherries, pineapple, and pecans. But the surprise ingredient is Coca Cola. This has been my families favorite for many, many years. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can cola-flavored carbonated beverage
- 1 (16.5 ounce) can pitted Bing cherries
- 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
- 1 (6 ounce) package black cherry flavored gelatin mix
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Drain pineapple. Drain the cherries and save their juice.
In a saucepan combine the reserved cherry juice with the coke. Heat until boiling then stir in the gelatin. Mix until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the drained pineapple, drained cherries and chopped pecans. Pour mixture into a mold sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.
