Bernadine Brock's Cranberry Fruit Salad

1 quart cranberries
3 or 4 apples
2 cups sugar
1 cup crushed pineapple (drained)
1 cup whipped cream
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup nuts

Grind cranberries and apples together. Add sugar and let stand for 2 hours. Fold in crushed pineapple, whipped cream, marshmallows and nuts. Let stand overnight. Stir gently before serving.

Bernadine Brock of Rose, Nebraska, placed this recipe in the Jolly Neighbors Extension Club's handwritten cookbook during the early 1960's. John and Bernadine Brock worked for Cecil Lee when he owned the ranch that I grew up on, and after we moved to the Lee place, the Brocks worked for the Shovel Dot Ranch.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
