Easy Orange Pinapple Cranberry Relish

My Grandmother *always* added in very finely chopped celery to this relish. I still sometimes do as well, but my kids really prefer it without... so when they will be eating it, I leave it out. The celery sounds like a very odd addition, I know... but it adds a very nice crunch to the relish and the celery flavor isn't even noticed.

1 Large box (6 oz) Orange Jello
1 Large can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in juice
1 Large can (16oz) whole berry Cranberry Sauce
2 stalks celery diced VERY small (optional)
2 cups boiling water

1: Mix cranberry sauce, crushed pineapple (including the juice) and celery (if using) in a heat proof bowl. Set aside.
2: In a separate heat proof bowl, mix Jello powder and 2 cups boiling water and stir to dissolve.
3: Add Jello mixture to cranberry/pineapple/celery mixture and stir well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
4: When you are ready to serve, stir Jello mixture well to create a saucy consistency.
