Cranberry Jello Recipe

2-1/2 cups orange juice
1 tsp.  ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 pkg.  (4-serving size) cranberry Jello
1 cup finely chopped mixed dried fruit (apricots, raisins, dates)
1 cup  chopped walnuts, toasted
1 Tbsp. grated orange or lemon peel (optional)
Mix juice, cinnamon and cloves in medium saucepan. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Add to dry gelatin in large bowl; stir at least 2 min. until gelatin is completely dissolved. Refrigerate about 1-1/2 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn through leaves a definite impression.)
Stir in fruit, walnuts and orange peel. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.
Spoon fruit mixture into 1-quart serving bowl. Serve with cooked chicken, turkey or pork. Or, serve as a dessert sauce spooned over ice cream or pound cake slices.
