Step by Step Method

Step 1

Wash and pick over cranberries, then drain well. Place cranberries in food processor or blender and coarsely chop. Stir in sugar, cover and marinade in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (I've even let mine marinate overnight). Next morning drain in sieve for 1 to 2 hours)

Step 2

When the cranberries have drained, core and chop apples. Combine the apples, celery, grapes and waltnuts. Stir in the cranberries and mayonaise. Chill for an hour or two and serve.
