Put the contents of a 16-oz can of whole berry cranberry sauce into a fine sieve and break up the contents so the juice can drain off. Dissolve a small Jell-O package (raspberry preferred) in 1 cup hot water. When it has started to gel (soft gel), mix in the cranberry sauce, 1 cup sour cream, ½ cup finely chopped celery and ½ cup finely chopped walnuts. The coarseness of the chop is up to you. Fold all together and refrigerate. No need to unmold. Put it in a pretty bowl and provide a spoon.
