1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon (1 envelope) plain unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water

Cook washed cranberries with one cup of water over low heat for 15 minutes. Just before removing from heat, add the sugar, and the gelatine which has been softened in the 1/4 cup cold water. When the mixture is cool, fold in the diced celery and chopped walnuts. Pour into small molds and chill.
