2 cup water divided
1 tsp unflavored gelatin 1 pkg
3.4 oz raspberry jello 1 pkg
3 cup cranberries fresh or thawed, divided
2 medium apples chopped
1 medium navel orange peeled, wedges separated and seeds removed
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup walnuts chopped
1/2 cup celery finely chopped

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil (either on the stovetop or in the microwave.) While the water heats up, prepare the next step.
In a large bowl add 1 tablespoon cold water and the unflavored gelatin. Let stand one minute.
Add boiling water and raspberry gelatin to bowl, then whisk until jello is dissolved, about 1-2 minutes.
Add remaining cold water (just shy of 1 cup) and whisk well.
Transfer bowl to the refrigerator and let chill for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until consistency has slightly thickened. The mixture is ready once a solid film can form along the top of the jello. While jello sets, do the next step.
In a food processor, add 2 1/2 cup cranberries, chopped apple, orange. Pulse a few times until Ingredients are evenly chopped.
Remove set jello from the refrigerator. Add chopped fruit, remaining 1/2 cup cranberries, walnuts, celery, and sugar to the bowl with the gelatin, then use a spatula to toss until thoroughly combined.
Spray a 16 cup bundt pan (standard bundt pan size) generously with cooking spray, then pour the jello salad mixture inside. Use a spatula to smooth out the top so that there aren't any producing pieces of walnuts or fruit.
Place bundt pan in the refrigerator and chill until jello is completely set, usually anywhere between 3-5 hours. For best results, let jello set overnight.
When ready to serve, remove the bundt pan from the refrigerator. Place a serving dish over the top of the bundt pan, then hold the plate in place while flipping the bundt pan over (so that the bundt pan ends up on top of the plate). If the jello doesn't immediately fall out, lift the bundt pan up about 1 inch and gently shake downwards; jello should quickly fall out. If needed, you can give the jello 5-10 minutes to warm up on the counter to help the jello release from the mold.
Cranberry jello salad can be served immediately or stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
