Applesauce Cinnamon Salad

This salad is actually a Jell-O salad, but the name is long enough already. My mother has been making it for years and we all love it. It's an often-requested recipe and super easy. And since I made it for a church potluck yesterday I decided to snap a few photos and share.

Without further ado . . . Applesauce Cinnamon Salad!

5 c. Applesauce (1 large jar)
1/4 c. Red Hot Candies
2 (6 oz.) pkg. Red Jell-O (I usually use 1 strawberry and 1 raspberry)
1/4 tsp. Knox Gelatin
2 c. Boiling Water

Boil the water. (I usually boil extra water and dissolve the Red Hots in a stainless steel bowl over the extra water.) Add the Red Hots to the water and stir to dissolve. Then add Jell-O and Knox gelatin and stir to dissolve.

At this point I usually pour the dissolved liquid through a sieve to ensure no Red Hot remnants make it into the final product.

Pour in the applesauce and stir to incorporate.

Place in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight to set. Enjoy!

And because I know one of my 4 readers over at Becka's blog loves birds I thought I'd share what was on the patio this morning. Congrats, Mrs. L. on the news of your own "Grandmother Nest" expanding by a little chickie.
